Crash slows SB I-75 in Butler County

MONROE, OH (FOX19) - A crash slowed the morning commute in the northern Cincinnati suburbs Thursday morning.

Only 1 lane was open on southbound Interstate 75 between Ohio 63 and Kyles Station Road for about two hours.

Four lanes of traffic were forced to merge into one of the middle lanes, causing major backups.

Traffic delays were up to 45 minutes before the crash cleared by 8 a.m.

Three vehicles including a semi tractor-trailer collided just after 6 a.m., according to Monroe police.

The semi was leaking fuel, but that has been cleaned up, the Ohio State Highway Patrol's Lebanon post said.

One person was taken to West Chester Hospital, Monroe police said.
