Crashes shut down ramp from EB I-275 to SB I-71 twice

Second crash at about 11 a.m. Second crash at about 11 a.m.

MONTGOMERY, OH (FOX19) -

Two separate crashes shut down the ramp from eastbound I-275 to southbound I-71 at two different times on Friday morning.

At around 11 a.m., a rollover crash shut down the ramp and three lanes of SB I-71. No serious injuries were reported, and all lanes were reopen before noon.

That crash occurred in almost the exact same location as an accident earlier on Friday morning. That crash happened at about 9:20 a.m. and blocked the ramp and the right two lanes of SB I-71.

Initial reports on that crash are that a woman suffered a head injury, but she is conscious and alert. Dispatchers say it's unclear if the woman was ejected from her vehicle or if she was a pedestrian who was struck by another car.

The ramp had been open for about a half hour before the second crash occurred.
