GREENE COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – Drivers walked away uninjured after a sheet of ice caused several cars to crash on SR-72 Monday night.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the events began when a deputy from the Greene County Sheriff’s Office was investigating a single-car crash near Clifton around 11:30 pm. While she was investigating, another vehicle traveling at unsafe speeds hit the slick ice and crashed into the deputy’s car.
An additional car slipped off the roadway, OSP said, but everyone walked away without major injures.
The road closed for about an hour while crews worked to clear the scene. OSP said It reopened around 1 am.
