ERLANGER, KY (FOX19) -

A jackknifed semi tractor-trailer created quite a traffic nightmare for northern Kentucky commuters Thursday morning.

The crash, reported hours ago, is still blocking all but the left lane on northbound Interstate 71/75 near I-275 in Erlanger.

Traffic came to a grinding halt when the crash was reported just after 5 a.m.

A man was found slumped over the wheel of the semi, dispatchers said.

He was taken to a hospital. His condition was not immediately released.

Traffic has been backed up in northern Kentucky all morning as a result.

Kentucky 8 and northbound I-471 are suggested detours.

That resulted in major delays on I-471 as well.

The highway also was slowed by at least one crash and a disabled vehicle near Kentucky 8.

Traffic also was slow in Hamilton County on southbound I-75 near I-275.

In Cincinnati, police responded to a crash involving a school bus in Pleasant Ridge.

A car ran into the bus carrying five Hyde Park Elementary School students just before 7 a.m., according to Queen City Transportation.

No one on the bus was hurt, according to the company.

It was not immediately clear if anyone was hurt in the car. 

Cincinnati police said they had no details to provide.
