Delphos, Ohio (WANE) — A semi crashed into a pond off U.S. 30 in Ohio around 9:45 p.m. on Wednesday, just north of Delphos, Ohio.

Ohio State Highway Patrol said in a news release Larry Choice, from Fort Wayne, fell asleep while traveling east on 30. His semi ran into the median, crossed the westbound lanes, went through a fence, and ended up partially submerged in a pond.

Choice was able to get out safely, with help from the homeowner.

The westbound lanes of 30 were closed for about two hours in the area, while crews removed the semi.
