The crash occurred off Highway 81 and Highway 64, just south of Columbus. The 17-year-old driver of the car was transported to Columbus Community Hospital with minor injuries. The Butler County Sheriff's Office says the 48-year-old semi driver apparently left the scene of the crash, not realizing he had hit the car, but was located miles away from the scene of the accident.

One lane of traffic was closed as authorities investigated the scene. The traffic lane was reopened around 7:30 a.m.
