ERIE COUNTY, Ohio (WJW) — Dozens of property damage claims have been filed days after a plow propelled snow over an Ohio Turnpike median during a winter weather event.
As of Wednesday, 44 vehicle owners have filed property damage claims after their vehicles were hit with debris and ice, according to the Ohio Turnpike and Infrastructure Commission.
It happened just before 2 p.m. on Jan. 23 when troopers say a plow truck traveling westbound on the turnpike between state Route 4 and state Route 250 caused snow and ice to be thrown into eastbound lanes, the Ohio State Highway Patrol says.
The employee is currently on administrative leave, pending the outcome of an investigation.
