Investigators initially blocked two lanes of the highway, but all lanes were allowed to reopen around 8 a.m.

The accident occurred about 5:30 a.m. when the ODOT driver cut off a black sedan while attempted to make a u-turn in the emergency lanes. The sedan rear-ended the salt truck, a trooper with the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.

The ODOT driver then drove behind the sedan to block it from oncoming traffic since it was dark and  the car was sitting in the middle of the highway, the trooper said.
