At approximately 7:45 p.m. Wednesday night, Wadsworth police officers responded to I-76 westbound, just east of Route 94, for a reported altercation between a semi-truck driver and another motorist.
The truck driver told authorities he was injured in an attack by an unknown suspect armed with a knife. Since the incident happened outside of the Wadsworth City corporation limits, the Ohio State Highway Patrol responded to handle the investigation.
What we know is the injured driver was taken by Wadsworth EMS to an Akron hospital. But further developments in the case overnight revealed this incident didn’t happen as initially reported. “There are no suspects at large or being sought,” said Wadsworth Police Lt. Dave Dorland in an email.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol is handling the investigation and will issue a release later Thursday morning. We will update this story with those details as soon as they become available.
Update at 11:45 a.m. from OSP:
