BELPRE, Ohio (WTAP) - Police say a driver who failed to stop behind two other stopped vehicles, is at fault for a chain reaction accident that closed part of route 50 and 7 in Belpre late Wednesday morning.

Police say the Chevy Tracker driven by Audrey Nicolia, hit the back of a second vehicle, which in turn struck the back of another vehicle stopped at the ramp at Main Street near the Ohio side of the Memorial Toll Bridge.

Police say Nicolia was transported to the Belpre campus of Marietta Memorial Hospital, but did not appear to have any serious injuries.


Authorities in Belpre are investigating a three-vehicle crash on the Route 7 exit ramp near the entrance to the Memorial Bridge.

Police described the crash, which happened about 11 a.m., as a chain-reaction collision and said one person was taken to the hospital after the wreck.
