Separate 75 and 50 vehicle pileups reported in Ohio


A winter storm in Ohio this morning resulted in multiple massive multi-vehicle crashes that continue to snarl traffic into the afternoon.

On State Road 8 in Summit County, Ohio, a pileup of 75 to 95 vehicles was reported following whiteout conditions on Tuesday morning, News 5 Cleveland reports. The pileup occurred on SR-8 between Route 303 and Seasons Road. There is no word yet on whether anyone was injured. SR-8 has since reopened in both directions.

A second pileup crash was reported on I-80 near Austintown, Ohio. This crash involved around 50 vehicles. It isn’t clear whether anyone was injured in the pileup.

On the Ohio Turnpike near Richfield, another major crash occurred in the westbound lanes during whiteout conditions that left one person dead. As of 2 p.m., a single lane of the westbound Ohio Turnpike was open to traffic and delays of about 25 minutes were reported.
