Severe Accident Closes Route 11

Several valley motorists had to find alternate routes on route 11 after a deadly crash shuts down a section of the highway.

It happened shortly before five this morning.  A truck carrying a trash dumpster collided with the Niles-Vienna Road overpass, damaging the bridge.

Shortly after a gas line in the bridge ruptured, causing crews to work quickly to repair the gas main.  Both sides of route 11 had to be shut down and several residents have now returned to their homes after being evacuated.

Authorities say the truck driver has been killed.  There is no word on how many others were injured in the accident of the severity of their injuries.
