EVENDALE, Ohio (FOX19) - The morning commute had a rough start Tuesday.

Northbound Interstate 75 was completely shut down at the Glendale Milford Road exit in Evendale for about six hours. It reopened just before 8:30 a.m.

A semi tractor-trailer overturned, spilling fuel and damaging temporary lane barriers in the construction zone about 1:15 a.m.

No injuries were reported.

A secondary crash was reported about 4:30 a.m., dispatchers say. It’s a fender-bender involving a semi and another vehicle, but this added to the tie-up.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been extended until 11 a.m.

Pavement temperatures are below freezing in many areas, setting up the possibility for slick spots.

No injuries or fuel spills were reported when the crash occurred just before 2 a.m.

The highway reopened by 5 a.m.
