Painesville, Ohio – The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a 28 car crash that sent several people to the hospital Christmas Eve.

The Chardon Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol responded to the multi-car crash on Interstate 90 at 10:20 a.m.

The crash is believed to have started after people tried to avoid a previous crash involving two commercial vehicles.

Eight people were transported from the scene to Madison Hospital and Geneva Hospital. No serious injuries were reported.

In the span of an hour, 16 crashes were reported in the same area. Several fire departments, police departments, and wrecker services helped clear the scene.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said alcohol is not considered a factor in the crash. Unreasonable speeds for the weather conditions is being cited as the cause.

The crash remains under investigation by the Chardon Post of the Highway Patrol.

    Wake up people winter time is near and the real “SNOW” is coming.
    if you don’t know how to drive in the snow or ice covered roads “stay out of the car” find someone that can take you where you need to go if it’s not that important then just don’t go out.

    I know some of you will say “i have a job to go to ” and i have to drive to work but you are nothing more than a “ACCIDENT” ready to happen.

    Ii know some of you think it will never happen to me but it only takes “ONE” time and someone can lose their life.

    And for the ones that think i can handle it i have driven in snow before and no problem but it does not have to be you it could be the one that should not be on the road “PERIOD” dry or wet rain or snow.

    And for the ones that are up in age no i take it back for the ones that cant see very well, cant hear well, high on drugs, the ones that your reactions are “SLOW”, leave the car’s “”ALONE””
