Two drivers have been charged for their role in an accident that halted traffic on Interstate-80 eastbound just east of State Route 193 after a crash on Wednesday afternoon. 

The portion of I-80 eastbound is now open after a semi-truck jack-knifed in that area.

According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Nikolay Pashkevich, 51, of Utica, NY was eastbound on I-80 in the left lane in a Volvo tractor with a semi-trailer, and a 17-year-old driver was eastbound on I-80 in the left lane in a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze.

The 17-year-old attempted to slow in traffic, began to slide, and traveled off the left side of the roadway into the median.

Pashkevich attempted to slow in traffic, traveled off the right side of the roadway, jack-knifed, and struck a guardrail.

Multiple accidents happened in the area causing damage to vehicles.

The second crash occurred when two cars slowed down after Pashkevic's semi jack-knifed.

Khalid D. Alshammari, 35, of Cuyahoga Falls, rear-ended one of the vehicles that had slowed down forcing it to run into another vehicle. 

Alshammari suffered minor injuries but was not transported to the hospital.

Pashkevich was also not injured. 

Pashkevich was charged with Failure to Maintain Reasonable Control of his vehicle and Alshammari was charged with Failure to Maintain an Assured Clear Distance Ahead.

The westbound lane of I-80 is open. There is currently only one lane open eastbound of I-80.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is still investigating the crash.
