CINCINNATI (WXIX) - All lanes of Interstate 275 at Springfield Pike were closed for about six hours following a crash Sunday, Springdale police said.

Springdale police say they were called around 9:30 a.m. after a driver, 53-year-old James Young, lost control of his truck and hit a utility pole.

Power and utility lines fell across the interstate and made contact with three other vehicles, one of which was an Ohio State Highway Patrol cruiser, according to troopers.

Young showed signs of impairment and was charged with OVI and failure to maintain control, troopers said. He was the only person taken to the hospital with injuries.

Lanes in both directions were closed for about six hours while Duke Energy cleared the wires from the interstate.

Troopers said all lanes of I-275 reopened around 3:30 p.m.
