OSHP: Seven Vehicles Involved in Friday's I-70 WB Pileup
ENON -- The Springfield post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol says Friday night's crash on I-70 westbound involved seven vehicles.
Troopers say the westbound lanes of I-70 were closed near mile post 47 for about an hour. Among the vehicles involved were five passenger vehicles and two semi-tractor trailers.
A woman was flown by CareFlight to Miami Valley Hospital with serious injuries. Five others, including a small child, were transported to nearby hospitals. They all had injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
The crash remains under investigation.
Multi-Vehicle Crash on I-70 Injures 6
ENON -- A five car accident shut down I-70 West for two hours and sent 6 people to the hospital Friday night.
Five cars brutally mangled, the people inside unable to call for help.
"I just saw a bunch of damaged cars when I got to the scene. Two people trapped, one guy in his car, a lady in her van," Kyle Cowgill, Middletown, explained.
Cowgill was heading home when he saw the aftermath just after 6pm.
"I ran out there to try to help him out. I contacted his wife to let her know he was okay and that was the best I could do," Cowgill continued.
Kyle called 911. Within minutes nearly 20 emergency vehicles and fast working crews began to peel the cars apart to save those inside.
"We spent probably about 20 minutes extricating the victims from the two vehicles. It required multiple departments and multiple agencies due to the 3 significant injuries we were aware of," Chief Tracy Young, Enon Mad River Fire Dept., explained at the scene.
All six victims were taken to the hospital. We watched as one victim was flown to Miami Valley with life threatening injuries.
Although the cause of the accident is still under investigation, officials say the winter weather and ever changing road conditions could be a factor
"Especially when you're on the interstate, driving at a high rate of speed. All it takes is a little bit of refreeze on the road a d not paying attention..you can end up in an incident like this," Young warned.
As the clean up continues slowly but surely, officials say if the snow starts to fall it will hinder their work but they are confident the scene will be cleared before the end of the night.
