A crash on the Sixth Street Bridge connecting Huntington to Chesapeake, Ohio, sent five people to the hospital and caused a traffic jam.
It happened about 3 p.m. Monday on the Chesapeake end of the bridge. Police said when a van stopped on the bridge, another car rear-ended it. Five out of the eight people in the van went to the emergency room with non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the car was now hurt. Traffic returned to normal once crews cleared the scene a short time later.
