Accidents tie up traffic on US 35 west

Ohio State Patrol Trooper Brad Huffman said three separate crashes occurred in the same area around 4 p.m.

A total of seven cars were involved: three in the first crash, and two each in the other collisions. No one involved required transport to the hospital.

Huffman said it did not appear that rubbernecking played a role, but that people were simply not paying enough attention.

He said three drivers will be cited for failure to maintain an assured safe distance.

Traffic was moving normally by 5 p.m.
