Sadly, winter weather and ice have contributed to a fatal accident, which happened in Ohio on Saturday. The crash happened on U.S. 30 early in the morning at a highway rest stop. Furthermore, 51-year-old, Craig Potter was standing outside of his semi when a pickup truck pulled into the rest stop, lost control, and struck the pedestrian. Tragically, that was not the first time Potter's semi was struck that day. As a result, a different vehicle at the rest stop hit Potter's semi, and when he got out to assess the damage to his truck, he was hit and killed. Likewise, this was the second accident on Saturday to include a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle that lost control on the ice; a trooper was struck on Interstate 465, and is in stable condition.
