Roads across the area were slick Monday morning, leading to several crashes

(WKBN) – Slick roads caused several wrecks during Monday morning’s commute.

Route 616 in Coitsville just south of the prison was closed after a crane truck flipped over on the road around 8 a.m. The truck was headed north when it went off the side of the road.

No one was hurt.

Clean-up crews were checking to see if any fluid leaked during the crash.

The road has since reopened.

Earlier in Austintown, two cars crashed at Kirk Road and Starwick Drive just after 6 a.m. No one was seriously hurt.

Minutes later, an SUV slid into a wall on the Himrod Expressway in Youngstown. The SUV was badly damaged, but the driver was up and walking around when the ambulance got there. One lane was closed, but has since reopened.

There was some light snow on the ground, with spots of black ice.
