One accident was an Amazon truck that jackknifed off the road and into the woods on I-80

HUBBARD, Ohio (WYTV) – Sunday night’s rain made for dangerous roads, causing several accidents across the Valley.

Slippery highways and reflective roads make night driving dangerous.

“We always want to remind drivers to slow down,” said Ray Marsh, a spokesperson for the Ohio Department of Transportation.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol was on the scene of an accident involving a jackknifed Amazon semi on Interstate 80.

It happened just before 5 p.m. near the 232 mile marker on I-80 eastbound.

The Amazon truck jackknifed and ran off the road and into the woods.

Traffic was backed up for miles while police left one lane open during the cleanup.

Over on 680 near exit 5, a van overturned on its side.

Crews left one lane of traffic open while they worked to clean up the scene.

“Any time the inclement weather comes and it starts to rain really heavy, your visibility goes down. Slow down and give yourself plenty of timeto get to where you need to be,” Marsh said.

All of the roads are clear Monday morning.

There is no word on whether any of the drivers were hurt.
