Snow snags traffic on Ohio roads

Snow that made driving treacherous across much of central and northern Ohio on Saturday resulted in numerous minor accidents and the shutdown of some roads.

The State Highway Patrol closed a stretch of Interstate 71 for five hours after a tractor-trailer carrying hazardous material overturned 20 miles north of Columbus.

The northbound lanes of Interstate 75 south of Toledo also were closed for 30 minutes, the patrol said.

All that is merely a foreshadowing of what could be the most severe storm of the season today, when northern two-thirds of Ohio faces up to 8 inches of snow and ice, the National Weather Service said.
