Portion of I-271 blocked during accident cleanup

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Authorities blocked a portion of I-271 for an early morning crash.

The crash was reported after 5:00 A.M. on Wednesday on I-271 north near I-480. One of the vehicles involved spun out and was facing the opposite direction.

Additional overnight snow accumulation along with gusty winds and drifting snow created hazardous driving conditions for morning commuters. Some drivers encountered snow covered travel lanes and reduced visibility due to lingering lake effect snow bands.
