4 trucks involved in crash that closed Ohio Turnpike for several hours

The Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating a crash that closed all lanes of the Ohio Turnpike early Monday. 

It happened just before 2 a.m. near mile marker 164 in North Royalton. 

A 2016 Mack dump truck was traveling westbound when its raised overhead bed hit an overhead sanitary pump line.

When the pump line fell into the road, it hit a car hauler that was headed eastbound on the highway. 

The load from the car hauler fell into the road and was hit by a 2007 International tractor and a 2016 Freightliner tractor.

The Intemational tractor sustained a ruptured gas tank which caused approximately 100 gallons of diesel fuel to spill onto the roadway.

The driver of the dump truck and the driver of the car hauler sustained minor injuries and were both treated and released at the scene. The other two drivers were not injured.
