COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - Another crash brought the morning commute to a crawl on Interstate 71/75 along the the Cut-in-the-Hill Tuesday.

A semi tractor-trailer jackknifed in the northbound lanes between 12th and 5th streets just before 4 a.m. Tuesday, Kenton County dispatchers said.

No one was hurt, but the massive vehicle partially blocked the highway for nearly three hours.

Traffic backed up for miles as motorists slowly passed the wreck no faster than 15 mph. That caused nearly hour-long delays by 6:30 a.m.

Three separate crashes on Monday alone slowed the I-71/75 commute.
