CRASH CLOSES INTERSTATE 70 NEAR DALLAS PIKE
The eastbound lanes of Interstate 70 were closed for several hours Wednesday afternoon following a
multi-vehicle crash near the Dallas Pike exit in Ohio County. The eastbound lanes were closed about 3:30 p.m. after two tractor-trailers and an SUV crashed, blocking the interstate, Ohio County sheriff’s deputies said. Two people were transported to area hospitals with
unspecified injuries. The closure caused lengthy delays and forced eastbound
motorists to take alternate routes. The interstate was
reopened to traffic about 6 p.m.
