Ohio Turnpike reopens all lanes after pileups

Posted: Updated:

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, Ind.

The State Highway Patrol said an injured trooper who was pinned between two vehicles during the crashes had surgery Saturday and was recovering.
