According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Interstate 77 South was shrunk to one lane and backed up traffic following a truck accident in which a semitrailer carrying building supplies was jackknifed. The truck accident reportedly occurred around 5:30 a.m. yesterday near the Ridgewood Road exit, which caused the Ridgewood entrance ramp and highway to be closed until about 8:30 a.m. when crews re-opened one lane while continuing to remove the debris from the roadway.
A recent truck accident in Bath Township, Ohio, caused some major delays in traffic on Interstate 77 South on Wednesday morning. According to responding law enforcement officers and recent news reports, the truck accident occurred on I-77S, on a bridge going over State Route 18, when a jackknifed semi-truck was forced up against the center wall of the roadway. Police believe that a smaller box truck, which was traveling in front of the semi-truck, lost control and lost its load all over the highway.
