YOUNGSTOWN,Ohio (WYTV) – A traffic accident early Tuesday morning shut down ramps onto a busy highway in Mahoning County.
Both the off and on ramps from Route 711 to Interstate 680 south were closed after a tractor trailer hauling trash tipped over.
The accident happened about 12:30 a.m. Trash was strewn across both access ramps.
One of the ramps was reopened by 5:30 a.m., and the other was open at 10:20 a.m. after the debris trash was cleared from the area.
Police believe the driver was going too fast coming off of Route 711 onto I-680 when he lost control of the semi. He was taken to Saint Elizabeth Health Center with minor injuries.
