A roll-over accident involving a semi on U.S. 30 east near Koogle Road caused some traffic delays early Thursday morning.

The Ohio Department of Transportation closed the eastbound and westbound passing lanes in the area for a couple of hours, while crews worked to clean up the mess.  All lanes are now open again.

The accident occurred at 5:30 a.m.

Sgt. Toby Smith with the Mansfield Post of the State Highway Patrol says the driver of the semi was traveling northbound on Interstate 71 exiting on to the U.S. 30 ramp to travel eastbound when failed to negotiate the curve at an unsafe speed.

"It was slippery. The vehicle had a load of scrap metal on the back and it shifted causing the tractor trailer to spin off the northside of the roadway. The load spilled into the median on to the westbound side of U.S. 30," Smith said.

"The semi driver was transported to MedCentral/Mansfield Hospital for observation. The driver was talking and was able to get out of the vehicle on his own," Smith said.

Sgt. Smith is reminding motorists to be careful on the roadways.

"Even though the roads maybe clear, in spots there are still going to be slippery areas," Smith said.
