A pair of multi vehicle crashes this morning caused U.S 30 Eastbound in Wooster Township to be closed for several hours. According to the Wooster Post of the Highway Patrol, the first accident occurred just after 7 a.m. when a semi hauling a tanker driven by a Lexington man went off the westbound lanes, across the median and crashed into another semi heading East on 30. The second semi was torn to shreds, and the driver, 49-year-old Craigory Chatman, of Georgia, had to be extracted from the truck. Chatman was taken to Wooster Community hospital with serious injuries, while the river of the first semi, 57-year-old Steven Sipes, was also taken to Wooster Community Hospital with minor injuries. Two other vehicles suffered damage from debris but were driven from the scene. Minutes after this crash, a second crash occurred involving two more vehicles, with one being towed from the scene. Both crashes caused the Eastbound lanes of 30 to be closed for over five hours. The crash remains under investigation.
