LAKE COUNTY, Ohio – The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a crash that shut down I-90 eastbound at S.R. 44 and Vrooman Road and I-90 at S.R. 615 for several hours Friday night.

OSHP has cited ‘following too close’ as the cause of the crash.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office said two tractor-trailers and multiple cars were involved in the crashes. One accident involved three tractor-trailers and two vehicles. The second accident involved a tractor-trailer that jackknifed.

The accident happened at 8:05 p.m. Friday and I-90 was closed until after 2:00 a.m. Saturday.

Officials said one person was transported to Cleveland Metro with non-life threatening injuries. Two others suffered minor injuries.

The scene of the crash was in the area where dozens of cars were damaged in a serious pileup on Christmas Eve.

      And if you hit my car or a family member of mine you better hope the highway patrol gets there to save you before I get my “insurance amount” due from you. Odds are, that since you are so cheap to get insurance (but probably have a smartphone complete w/unlimited data), you probably don’t have assets to cover the damage to my vehicle.

      Just like not tailgating, it’s the law. Follow it. Or park. You’re wrong to be driving.

    Love that there is no responsibility placed on the state for allowing those barricades to remain up during the winter season. Absolutely ridiculous! Hard to drive with a semi 4 inches from my car.
