COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Two women were killed Wednesday morning in a crash on I-70 eastbound near Hilliard-Rome Rd.

Franklin County Sheriff's investigators say traffic was backed up due to another incident on the freeway, near Wilson Road, about 4 miles away.

A semi-truck driven by Tony Smith of Chicago, Illinois failed to notice the traffic slowing in front of him. He hit two vehicles, sending them into a semi, which then hit a third vehicle.

Diana L. Schwab, 71, of Beavercreek and Robin S. Jones, 48, of London were pronounced dead at the scene.

J. Tara Wimble of London, Ohio was taken to Mount Carmel West Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The freeway re-opened around 4p.m.
