CLEVELAND — Overnight rain transitioned into a messy mix of ice and some lake-effect snow on Monday morning, causing multiple crashes across several highways in Northeast Ohio.

News 5 photojournalist Mike Vielhaber, who has been tracking overnight news and weather for more than a decade, said he’s never seen road conditions as bad as he did overnight.

While driving over several bridges on I-77 southbound from the Ohio Turnpike to Route 21, he documented bridges completely covered in ice.

The Ohio Department of Transportation said it had over 30 trucks throughout the Cleveland area treating the roads.
