Traffic rerouted after I-80 crash in Weathersfield Twp.


WEATHERSFIELD TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – A portion of westbound Interstate 80 was blocked by a crash for over an hour Thursday evening.

The crash occurred between 8:30 and 9 p.m. in the westbound lanes near the Salt Springs Road exit. Drivers were rerouted before the road was cleared just before 10 p.m.

A truck and two other vehicles were involved in the crash, according to a police officer on the scene. The officer said the injuries did not appear to be significant.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

Earlier in the evening, the road in that area was reduced to one lane for a road widening project. That lane was closed until about 6 a.m. Friday for that project.
