TOLEDO, OHIO (AP) — Authorities say traffic on the Ohio Turnpike is back to normal following a massive pileup Wednesday that left three people dead about halfway between Toledo and Cleveland.
A toll road spokesman said all lanes were open as of Saturday after a series of crashes involving about 40 vehicles that resulted in two separate pileups.
Adam Greenslade said a single lane will be closed for several hours early Monday to remove two tractor-trailers left behind on a two-mile stretch of the eastbound lanes southwest of Sandusky.
Victims of the pileups were a truck driver from Illinois, 20 year old Hannah Matheny of Parma and 66-year-old Janice Robb from Schererville, Indiana.
The State Highway Patrol said an injured trooper who was pinned between two vehicles during the crashes had surgery Saturday and was recovering.
