CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A catastrophic accident on I-90 east in Cleveland shut down eastbound traffic through much of the West Side on Tuesday evening.
Several police departments blocked I-90 east entrance ramps from Westlake to Cleveland to alleviate the traffic mess.
The miles-long stoppage was triggered after a fiery one-car rollover crash, which occurred at about 6:23 p.m. on the highway, according to Cleveland Police.
As of 9:20 p.m., authorities are beginning to reopen eastbound lanes and ramps.
The driver was taken to MetroHealth hospital, but Cleveland EMS would not comment on the victim’s condition.
