Buffalo Man Killed in Ohio Car Accident

Comments Off

A Buffalo man is dead and his wife has been critically injured, in a car accident on Monday, when their car crossed the median on Interstate 90 in Ohio and crashed head-on into an oncoming tractor trailer.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, said the Ohio State Highway Patrol. The accident occurred in Ashtabula County, near Cleveland and Erie, Pennsylvania. His wife was transported to Cleveland hospital where she was listed in critical condition.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says initial reports that said he was driving the wrong way are untrue. Actually, he was traveling east in the eastbound lanes, when he crossed over into the westbound lanes, troopers now speculate.

Officials are also investigating the possibility that he may have fell asleep behind the wheel. He had drifted a long way from the eastbound lane across the median into the far hand side of the westbound lane, said police.
