Trooper injured in Ohio Turnpike crash stable

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - The State Highway Patrol says a trooper injured while investigating a fatal pileup on the Ohio Turnpike that killed three people is in serious but stable condition.

A series of crashes Wednesday involved at least 50 vehicles on the turnpike after a blast of winter weather struck.

The patrol says trooper Andrew Clouser from the Milan Patrol Post was being treated at a Toledo hospital. The 29-year-old trooper has been with the patrol just over a year

The patrol also says Clouser was injured responding to one of the first accidents when he was pinned between two vehicles.

Pileups stretched across a 2-mile section in the eastbound lanes midway between Toledo and Cleveland.

Another series of crashes about 10 miles to the east shut down westbound lanes near Sandusky.
