PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) - Multiple crashes involving up to 40 vehicles shut down the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 east of Cleveland.
The accidents Tuesday closed an 11-mile stretch of I-90 near the city of Painesville. That's about 30 miles east of downtown Cleveland.
Troopers say there aren't any serious injuries in the crashes that began before noon.
The State Highway Patrol expected the eastbound lanes to remain closed through much of Tuesday afternoon. Troopers say snow and ice made driving conditions hazardous in that area of Lake County.
Interstate 90 links Cleveland with Erie, Pa., and Buffalo, N.Y.
