Crashes clear after rough morning commute

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A series of crashes caused major delays on southbound Interstate 75 through Downtown and into Northern Kentucky early Tuesday.

A two-vehicle accident blocked the right lane at the end of the Brent Spence Bridge in Covington for more than an hour at the heart of the commute, Kenton County dispatchers said.

Then, another crash blocked the center lane just before the Ezzard Charles exit in the West End.

At one point, traffic was backed up to I-74.

Other crashes slowed the drive by blocking the left lanes on both southbound I-75 before Mitchell Avenue and northbound I-71 before Red Bank Road.
