SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio — An accident on the Ohio Turnpike that was causing major traffic backups in Peninsula late Wednesday was cleared by early Thursday morning.

The Ohio Turnpike tweeted that all lanes were blocked eastbound due to a commercial rollover with heavy debris.

Long delays are expected, but crews are now able to get traffic through slowly on the left shoulder.
