MANSFIELD, OH - A multiple-vehicle accident occurred Friday evening around 5:30 pm on I-71 South near mile marker 176. Initial reports claimed a semi flipped onto multiple cars. However, Ohio State Highway Patrol could not give a statement at that time, so it is currently unknown what exactly happened or who is at fault.

No injuries were reported, but significant damage was apparent on multiple vehicles. 

The accident occurred right on top of the onramp for US 30, so four separate lanes of traffic were forced to merge into one. This resulted in traffic being backed up for several miles. No word on how long the cleanup is expected to take, or when new lanes will be reopened.
