TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

First Energy reported about 2,000 customers in south Toledo without power Saturday afternoon. Officials estimated power would be restored by 3:30pm Saturday, but as of 2 p.m., officials reported power had been restored to most homes. Only spotty reports of outages remained.

Icy roads and winds causing drifting snow lead to several accidents on area roadways.

Shortly after noon, Maumee Police asked drivers to be advised that traffic signals are out at 24 and Michigan. Stop signs will temporarily turn the intersection into a 4-way stop.

Around 11:30 a.m., the Ohio State Highway Patrol was on the scene of an accident that shutdown all westbound lanes of the Ohio Turnpike at mile marker 116, just west of Route 250. 

Authorities say there were multiple vehicles involved in the crash, including semi trucks. Some drivers reported minor injuries. Traffic is being routed off the Turnpike onto Route 250.

Also around 11:30 a.m., ODOT reports I-75 northbound, just south of State Route 582, in Wood County closed due to an accident.

Shortly after 10:15 a.m., US 23/I-475 SB was shutdown near Monroe Street due to a jack-knifed semi, according to Sylvania Police. Any injuries in that crash were not reported.

Around 10 a.m., the Ohio State Highway Patrol in Bowling Green advised drivers to avoid using I-75 if possible.  They say a number of vehicles were sliding off of the road. Troopers say the highway appeared to be covered in snow and ice.
