CINCINNATI (AP) — Officials say the voluminous accident report on last week's southwest Ohio highway pileup won't be done for several weeks — and it could be years before all the legal issues are sorted out.
A freak snow squall Jan. 21 led to a pileup involving 103 cars, trucks and semi tractor-trailers on Interstate 275 near Cincinnati, involving about 200 drivers and passengers. Twenty-seven people were injured and a 12-year-old girl was killed when she was struck by a median cable while waiting for help.
The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/Vrrr6w ) reports that the final report is expected to be 500 to 700 pages long. Traffic investigators say they may never figure out whether there was one at-fault driver who triggered it or dozens of separate crashes.
