Original Story:

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said seven cars were involved in an accident on Route 7 on Monday night. It happened around 9:00 p.m. at the intersection at Hanover Street.

Multiple emergency crews were on the scene of the accident and traffic was moving by slowly in the southbound lanes, while the northbound lanes appeared to be stopped. 

There is no word on anyone being injured. The accident will take a few hours to clean up so drivers should expect delays if they are traveling through the area late Monday night.
