Interstate 90 in Lake County reopens in time for morning commute

LEROY TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- A quick freeze and heavy snow are being blamed for the massive pileup along Interstate 90 Thursday.

The section of road reopened just after 5 a.m. Friday, after the accident which involved 50 vehicles, including 20 commercial vehicles and a Greyhound bus, shut down the road around 3 p.m. Thursday.

The Lake County Sheriff tells FOX 8, roughly 20 people were hurt, 3-to-4 people suffered serious injuries.

Authorities say the accident started when a vehicle stopped in the East bound lanes at Vrooman Road, triggering a chain-reaction crash as drivers in the opposite lane tried to avoid the cars swerving in their direction.
