An Ohio car accident involving two tractor-trailers, a motorcycle, and several cars that occurred early Thursday morning has left three people dead. According to a report by The Courier, the accident occurred along a stretch of I-475.

The accident occurred at 5:25 AM, when a Dodge Ram pickup truck driven by one of the victims collided with a semi-truck merging onto the roadway. The pickup became disabled in the roadway, and the driver got out and was awaiting assistance on the side of the road with the driver of the tractor-trailer and two witnesses.

Another accident occurred as the driver of a motorcycle and a tractor-trailer attempted to avoid hitting the pickup truck. The driver of the motorcycle was thrown from the bike and the accident caused the tractor-trailer to strike the driver of the pick up and one of the witnesses to the first crash. All three were declared dead at the scene of the accident. The second witness to the first accident jumped off of a bridge to avoid being struck in the collision and suffered critical injuries. She was transported to University of Toledo Medical Center for treatment. The crashes are currently under investigation by local authorities.
