ROUTE 57 & CHESTNUT CRASH

Witnesses suggest that road work being done on Route 57 near Chestnut may have contributed to a crash in that intersection Wednesday afternoon.

The driver of the red Chevy was southbound on Route 57 and wanted to turn east onto Chestnut to get to his home. As he approached the intersection road workers had the two turning lanes blocked with traffic cones. Drivers had to make the east turn from the straight lane with poor visibility of northbound traffic. When he made his turn he collided with a car traveling north through the intersection.

Eaton Township Fire and Rescue responded but said everyone signed off refusing treatment or transport. Firefighters did remain on scene to help with traffic and to wash down the fluids that had spilled onto the roadway.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

I knew what happened there before even reading the story. I was through there about an hour before that happened and the same thing almost happened to me. I was southbound and wanted to turn east to go to Walmart. When I got to the intersection the turn lanes were blocked off so I went up to Chestnut and by then the green arrows had turned red. I decided to go up to the Rt-10 get on to U-turn rather than end up the middle of the intersection. Those road workers really had that screwed up, there was really no where to go unless you did what I did.
