Major delays WB I-275 during morning commute

SHARONVILLE, OH (FOX19) - Motorists faced major delays on westbound Interstate 275 in eastern Hamilton County during the morning commute Tuesday.

Traffic is flowing normally again near Mosteller Road in Sharonville after a crash closed the right two lanes for more than an hour.

A vehicle ran about 30 feet off the highway just before the U.S. 42 exit, over a guardrail and down an embankment about 6 a.m., according to Hamilton County dispatchers.

Two people were hurt, they said. One was trapped in a vehicle and had to be extricated by fire crews.

Both were taken to Bethesda North Hospital.

A few other crashes n the area of I-71 and Reed Hartman resulted in continued delays in the westbound lanes.

Drive times jumped to well over 30 minutes all the way back to Loveland-Madeira Road.
