Single Vehicle Accident at the 179mm Northbound Lane of I-71

This evening, the Ohio Highway Patrol, Mifflin Fire Department, and EMS responded to a single vehicle accident that occurred at the 179mm Northbound Lane of I-71.

The incident involved a Jeep Grand Wagoneer, which was traveling northbound on I-71 at the 179 mile marker when it unexpectedly lost control, veering off the right side of the highway.

The vehicle crashed through a guardrail, resulting in a disorienting spin and ultimately colliding with a fence, in a remarkable reverse motion. The severity of the situation was further emphasized by the vehicle's proximity to a potential 30-foot drop-off into the creek.

Fortunately, no major injuries were reported.

Aber's Towing & Crane Center provided assistance at the scene.
