Snow results in 50-vehicle crash on I-80

Winter again demonstrated its power to disrupt traffic and send scores of motorists to the hospital in a recent incident. The heavy snow that spread across Ohio recently resulted in a massive 50-vehicle pile-up on Interstate 80 just east of Austintown. The chain reaction accident began at about 10:30 a.m. in the westbound lanes of I-80. All westbound lanes on I-80 were closed during much of the day as police and rescue crews worked to untangle the wreckage.

Will this be your first holiday season without your loved one?

If you're one of many people in Ohio who are mourning the loss of a loved one, you can likely relate to feeling that some days are better than others.

With the holidays right around the corner, you may need added support.

Governor signs law setting new safety rules for amusement rides

Understanding accident reconstruction

Many news reports of vehicle accidents in Ohio end with the statement that the collision is being further investigated. What, exactly, does this mean? The vehicles have come to rest, police have checked the physical condition of the drivers and any passengers and summoned any emergency medical care that may be needed. What else remains to be learned?
