Ohio interstate opens 14 hours after 50-vehicle pileup


PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say an interstate east of Cleveland is open again after a pileup of about 50 vehicles in snowy conditions shut down the highway for more than 14 hours.

The Lake County sheriff’s office says about 20 people were injured in the chain reaction crash Thursday.

Highway crews reopened the roadway Friday morning after the crash that involved a Greyhound bus and over a dozen trucks on Interstate 90.

Bus passenger Greg Carmichael tells local news stations 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.
