As the snow flies – so do the cars off the highways. Eaton Township Firefighters were called to Route 20, just east of Route 57 for a roll over traffic crash. A man traveling westbound on Route 20, around 1:30pm, lost control of his SUV and crossed the median into the eastbound lanes. The truck then went off the road rolling over before coming to rest on its wheels down in a ditch.

Firefighters evaluated the driver in the ambulance but the man refused any treatment or transport.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.

The National Weather Service in Cleveland has updated its SNOW ADVISORY for our area.

Occasional lake effect snow showers will continue tonight. A trough of low pressure will move across Lake Erie toward morning, likely increasing the intensity of the lake effect late tonight and Tuesday morning as winds shift from the northwest to the north.

Snowfall amounts from tonight through early Tuesday afternoon will range from 5 to 8 inches.

Love it every year people forget how to drive in the snow or on ice. slow down and remember just because you have four wheel drive it does no good on ice. some people never learn.
