My son and I left Grove City today at 11:45 and didn't get home (morrow county) until 4:00! As we kept driving north on 71,the more accidents we seen. We only seen ONE ODot truck in 4 hours, I couldn't believe it!! One other thing I could'nt believe, a van from NY flew past us and came very close to hitting the EMTs that were loading people in a ambulance!!! What do people think? All of us are going somewhere, so slow down, we all want to get there too!!!! Thanks to all the EMTS,Medics,and Firefighters for what you do!!

Since my last post at 9:30 my friend has only moved the distance of two cars. He is at mile marker 143. Why is traffic not moving? Has the accident been cleared? Does anyone know when they expect to get traffic up and going again?

Southbound is still slow. Crawling slowly between sr 61 and 36. Definitely going to try our luck in Delaware rather than continue down this mess.

The traffic was NOT diverted where it should have been. The State Route 61 exit near Marengo should have been shut down. Cars were entering the on ramp, turning around on the interstate, driving the wrong way on the interstate and back up the on ramp. There was not a Sherrif's car or state highway patrol car or anything there to keep cars from entering the on ramp. Traffic was not being diverted off there or at the Mt. Gilead exit further north. Traffic was backed up from the Delaware exit clear to the Galion/Marengo exit on SR 61.
rt, 61 is the mt.gilead exit...

I turned the wrong way (north in southbound lanes)to get to the turnaround so I could go back north. (traffic was stopped and had been for about an hour) I really had to go poop and I couldn't hold it any longer. And I was gonna be damned before I crapped on the side of the freeway with a thousand people watching. But I wanted to say sorry.

survior 40 car pile up

I want to say the semi have to 500 feet stopping distant and if something happens in front of them they can't also stopped in time. The two semi that were part of my section of the pile up tried their best to make the accident as less of damaged as possible. The one semi ended up turned on it's side instead of hitting me full force in the rear. Our part started with a car spinning out on the on ramp from SR 36/37 to I-71. It took about three hours for the one highway patrol officer to take the report and get tow trucks for the cars and semis that needed towed. I'm very grateful to the one semi driver who gave me a long sleeved shirt to wear since I was soaked. I'm glad no one was seriously injuried in this mess.
