COVINGTON, KENTUCKY (FOX19) - A crash has the morning commute off to a rough start in northern Kentucky headed into downtown Cincinnati.

Northbound Interstate 71/75 is fully open again just before the 12th Street exit after a crash closed it for more than an hour.

Two people were hurt in a 3:45 a.m. collision between at least two vehicles, dispatchers confirm.

They were taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Details on their injuries were not immediately available.

Then, adding to congestion in that area of the highway, the left lane was briefly closed on the southbound side about 4:50 a.m.

An ambulance responded to a medical incident over there, dispatchers said.
