A Schererville woman was killed Wednesday in a 20-vehicle pileup on the Ohio Turnpike, police said.

Janice M. Robb, 66, was a passenger in a Chevrolet Venture vehicle that was involved in the chain-reaction crash in the eastern Sandusky County area, according to the Ohio State Patrol.

Police reported that the crash scene was at the end of a mile-long backup from another accident in which two people were killed and an Ohio trooper was injured in a weather-related 16-vehicle pileup.

Approximately 50 vehicles were trapped between the two crash zones, according to the state patrol.
