BROOKLYN -- Police and the Ohio State Highway Patrol were on the scene of a rollover accident that caused traffic to come to a halt Saturday afternoon.

The accident happened on Interstate 480 westbound near Ridge Road.

James D. Cimperman Jr, 47, of Olmsted Falls,  was taken to an area hospital.

Troopers say Cimperman hit the center median multiple times before crossing over all four lanes hitting the guardrail on the right side of the road. 

Cimperman's Ford Ranger then rolled multiple times ejecting Cimperman from his truck.

The accident is still under investigation.

All lanes were finally reopened just after 8 p.m. Saturday.
