      I-75 drunken driving crash under investigation

      One lane of I-75 just reopened following a nasty drunk driving crash.

      A Wood County man was charged with OVI and Reckless Operation after a two-vehicle accident Friday morning.

      The crash happened around 2:30 a.m. on I-75 in Portage Township just south of Bowling Green.

      Derek Dingus, 32, of Milton Center was heading south in a Mazda 6 when he hit a truck from behind. Dingus swerved off the road, overturned and his car caught fire.

      He and passenger Nicholas Boulis, 31, of Bowling Green were trapped in the car but a state trooper managed to get them out. Both men were taken to Wood County hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Neither man was wearing a seat belt.
