From Sergeant Bowling at the Connersville post…the semi has been removed from the I-70 ramp to US 35 at the 149 mile marker in Wayne County. State Highway is on the scene with a front end loader clearing the heavy snow from the ramp as several cars are stranded there. On I-70 at the 144 mile marker eastbound there is a crash involving a car and semi. There are no injuries and both vehicles are off the roadway.
Henry County is now reporting to be on a level III snow emergency along with Franklin County in our district. All other counties are on a level II emergency.
I-70 remains down to one ice covered lane as are all state roads in our district. Secondary roads are mainly impassable as our district continues to receive heavy snowfall.
