PAINESVILLE, Ohio — At least three people are still in serious condition after a pile-up involving nearly 50 vehicles shut down a portion of Interstate 90 in Lake County Thursday.

Nearly 20 people were injured in the crash. Lake County Chief Deputy Frank Leonbruno said the rest of the injuries were minor to slightly serious.

Leonbruno also said the crash started when a vehicle stopped in the eastbound lanes at Vrooman Road.

There was a chain reaction from there, with several vehicles rear-ending each other and other cars trying to avoid the crashes, ending up in the wrong lanes.

Highway crews reopened the roadway Friday morning after the crash that involved a Greyhound bus and over a dozen trucks.

Bus passenger Greg Carmichael tells Fox 8 News he was heading home to Buffalo, New York. He says about an hour into the ride the weather conditions worsened and a truck hit the bus from behind on I-90, causing a domino effect crash.

He says several people on the bus were seriously injured.
