Cleveland, OH (October 24, 2023) – A crash reported on Sunday morning in the Cleveland area left several people injured.
The incident occurred at around 1:15 a.m. on Sunday, October 22.
Reports provided by the Cleveland Police Department show that a vehicle was traveling the wrong way on Interstate 90 during the morning hours. As the vehicle proceeded down the eastbound side of the roadway, it collided with at least two other vehicles near Carnegie Avenue.
Multiple people were injured as a result of the accident. Emergency medical services responded to the scene. A 40-year-old man, a 21-year-old man, and a 42-year-old woman were all transported to area hospitals with critical injuries.

Car Accidents in Ohio
Car accidents occur far too frequently in the state of Ohio. These accidents leave thousands of people injured every single month. The unfortunate truth is that many accidents that we see on our roads are preventable. There are thousands of instances where people are hurt as a result of drivers who are speeding, fail to yield, and are distracted.
Over the past few weeks, we have seen an alarming increase in the number of motor vehicle accidents involving vehicles traveling in the wrong direction here in the Cleveland Metropolitan area. There are many things that can contribute to this increase.
Currently, in Cuyahoga County, the Ohio Department of Transportation has in place a construction project on the eastbound side of Interstate 90 to add a third lane of travel to the roadway. It is a possibility that this construction area may be causing some confusion for drivers.
In addition, if individuals are unfamiliar with our roadways, they may not know which direction to enter the highway. Distractions, impairment, and other negligent actions can also contribute to these accidents occurring.
Unfortunately, far too often, innocent people are hurt as a result of automobile collisions.
