An Ohio Department of Transportation worker was killed Monday morning in an accident on Interstate 71 in Delaware County.

The accident occurred around 9:30 a.m. when semi traveling northbound on I-71 went off the right side of the road and struck a backhoe on the right berm near mile post 124 just north of Polaris near U.S. 36/37.

The semi overturned and caught fire.

The worker operating the backhoe, has been identified as Lee Rizor, 27, of Mount Gilead. Rizor was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the semi, Dwayne Allen Hill, 59, of Ashland, VA, was taken to the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in critical condition.

 The northbound and southbound lanes of Interstate 71 near Polaris Parkway were shutdown. I-71 southbound opened at 11 a.m. 
 

The road remains closed and authorities are not sure when the road will be opened.

Motorists are urged to use U.S. 36 east to S.R. 3 as an alternate route.

Interstate 71 north at I-270 is also closed. Motorists can use S.R. 315 and U.S 23 as alternate routes.
