Ohio Turnpike pileups will take days to clean up

Posted: Updated:

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Traffic on the Ohio Turnpike is moving again where a massive traffic pileup left three people dead about halfway between Toledo and Cleveland.

Toll road officials say it will take days to clean up the tractor-trailers and debris left behind on a two-mile stretch of the eastbound lanes southwest of Sandusky.

The State Highway Patrol says the series of crashes involving about 40 vehicles Wednesday afternoon included two separate pileups.

The victims included a truck driver from Illinois and 20-year-old Hannah Matheny of Parma who was in another car.

The patrol says a second crash involving about 20 vehicles killed 66-year-old Janice Robb from Schererville, Ind.

A trooper who was pinned between two vehicles during the crashes remained in serious but stable condition Thursday.
