Green Accident Closes I-77 Ramp

A serious accident along I-77 started with a high-speed chase between Ohio State Highway Patrol Troopers and a suspect vehicle. 

According to the State Highway Patrol, a Trooper attempted to pull over a newer model Chevy Camaro around 1:45 a.m. Thursday along I-77 Northbound near the Akron-Canton Airport. The Trooper said when he turned on his lights, signalling the driver to pull over, the driver continued and sped up. That's when the pursuit started. 

The driver then attempted to exit the highway at the I-77 North exit to Massillon Road., lost control, and struck a light pole and a traffic box. The car was totaled and the driver was ejected from the vehicle. 

The car came to a rest on the west side of Massillon Road with the driver lying in the middle of the street alongside glass and other debris from the vehicle. 

He was transported to a local hospital with unknown injuries. The ramp to Massillon Road was closed for several hours following the incident, but as of 10:35 a.m. has re-opened.
