Semi vs. car on snarls traffic on SB I-71/75

COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - Southbound Interstate 71/75 was temporarily shut down Friday afternoon after an accident involving a car and a semi truck.

The accident happened around 1:30 p.m. just south of the Brent Spence Bridge.

It's unclear if anyone was injured.

Traffic was backed up into Ohio, but all lanes were open by 2:15 p.m. They were shut down again for a short time around 3 p.m. so a tow truck could remove a fire truck that had broken down.
