NORTH JACKSON, Ohio (WKBN) – All lanes on Interstate 76 in Jackson Township are open after a deadly crash Tuesday night.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol at Canfield says two people are dead and one person was injured in the crash near the Ohio Turnpike interchange.
Two tractor-trailers and a car were involved; one of the trucks subsequently caught fire.
Troopers took eastbound I-76 traffic off at the Bailey Road exit. Traffic was diverted for several hours as crews worked to clear the scene. All four lanes opened about 2 a.m.
Drivers reported traffic backing up before Bailey Road, so many were exiting at Route 534.
The patrol, Jackson Township firefighters and the coroner were at the scene.
