CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Two accidents caused major backups on I-75 South in Cincinnati and into northern Kentucky Friday morning.

According to the traffic report, the vehicle was traveling south on I-75 when the driver failed to maintain control of the vehicle and crashed the concrete median. 

The southbound lanes at Ezzard Charles were shut down for several hours after a semi-truck crashed into the median, spilling over to the northbound lanes. 

Officials say the driver,  58-year-old Cleotis Hatch, of Miamisburg, was cited for failure to maintain control.

A second crash in Covington shut down I-71/75 South just off the Brent Spence Bridge around 4 a.m.. Officials say a jackknifed semi-truck and motorcycle were involved in that accident. 

One person was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries.

Both accidents have been cleared and all lanes are open.
