BEREA, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Turnpike is banning big trucks and some trailers on the toll road between Toledo and the Indiana state line because of snow and high winds.

The ban applies to triple-trailer commercial vehicles and box-type, double-trailer commercial vehicles longer than 90 feet.

Also not being allowed on the western end of the turnpike are mobile home trailers, boat and horse trailers and high-profile campers.
