If you were one of the unfortunate drivers stuck on I-90 last night after the Ice & Snow blew through then you know how horrible the conditions were. Ice covered the highway as cars slide into other unlucky motorists while most just ended up in medians and ditches. Elyria Police Officers were dealing with a large number of non-injury accidents, in some cases just going on foot from one to the next. LifeCare Ambulance Paramedics and Elyria Firefighters responded and also checked the many accidents only finding one person that needed treatment. Conditions were so bad that the highway was shut down for a period of time while road crews plowed and dumped salt.

A crash on I-90 just west of Middle Ridge in Amherst Township sent two people to the hospital after their car rolled over. Another car went off the road on Middle Ridge Road just south of I-90 hitting a tree.

The National Weather Service is forecasting more snow this morning and clearing in the afternoon. The windy conditions should continue through the day and evening with winds blowing up to 20mph.
