NORTH JACKSON, Ohio (WKBN) – A man from Boardman is facing OVI charges after crashing his SUV along I-80 in North Jackson.

The accident happened about 2 a.m. Monday on a portion of I-80 that goes over Lipkey Road. 

Troopers say 66-year-old Terrance Thomas, of Boardman, was traveling east on I-80 when he lost control of the vehicle, went into the westbound lanes, and then down an embankment and into a concrete barrier along Lipkey Road.

Thomas was not hurt in the crash. 

The westbound lane of I-80 was closed while crews hauled the SUV up the embankment and onto the highway.
