FORT MITCHELL, KY. (FOX19) - Southbound Interstate 71/75 is open again after a crash involving a semi tractor-trailer shut down in Northern Kentucky for about five hours Monday morning.

Delays at one point were approaching two hours before all lanes cleared just before 6:30 a.m.

The semi crashed into the median wall and spilled fuel on the southbound side of the highway near Dixie Highway at 1:13 a.m., dispatchers said.

No injuries were reported, but chunks of concrete blew onto lanes on both sides of the highway.

Both sides of the highway were closed for more than an hour after a second crash involving a semi and a vehicle occurred on the northbound side of the highway.

Northbound I-71/75 reopened by 5 a.m.
