The closure was because of an 11:14 p.m. Wednesday accident.

According to the Medina post of the Ohio Highway Patrol, Litchfield Township resident Clint Samples, 35, smashed into a guardrail on the left side of Eastern Road in a 2000 Jeep Cherokee.

Samples was not injured but was cited for operating a vehicle without reasonable control.
