25-plus car pileup closes I-90 East of Cleveland

25-plus car pileup closes I-90 East at Vrooman; coroner says no injuries


December 24, 2013

25 cars in Ohio were involved in a pileup on Interstate 90 eastbound as the State Highway Patrol have closed the highway at Vrooman Road. The pileup occurred early Tuesday afternoon. There were no injuries.

At 2:10 p.m., the Ohio Department of Transportation Tweeted that tow trucks have arrived on scene and are beginning to remove vehicles. ODOT crews will also be clearing snow from I-90 eastbound for when the road is able to be reopened.

Motorists are being detoured off I-90 eastbound at state Route 44 northbound to state Route 2/U.S. Route 20 eastbound.

1. I almost got caught in one of those, going down on I75

I veered off to the shoulder and into the ditch, and managed not to get hit or hit anyone.

All the other cars, except a few, were slamming into each other like crazy. I think I was "paralyzed" for a while, just out of the shock of what was happening.

Pile ups are insane. But they do happen.

2. Driving too fast and/or close for the conditions

Some people continue to try and defeat physics.
