Major delays on area highways Wednesday morning

SYMMES TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The morning commute was a rough one Wednesday morning with major delays on two interstates.

A four-vehicle accident brought traffic to a standstill on westbound I-275 just before the Loveland Indian Hill Road exit about 7:20 a.m., according to Hamilton County emergency communication reports.

Cars crawled by on the right shoulder for about an hour with 50 minute-long delays. Traffic backed up all the way to U.S. 50.

Two people were hurt and taken to Bethesda North Hospital, a dispatcher said.

All lanes opened by 8:20 a.m., but lengthy delays remain.

Earlier, a disabled vehicle blocked the left lane on northbound Interstate 71/75 just before the Brent Spence Bridge in Covington, according to Kenton County emergency communication reports.

That turned the Northern Kentucky commute to Downtown Cincinnati into a gridlocked mess with delays more than 100 minutes.
