ERLANGER, Ky. (WXIX) - A crash Monday night briefly closed southbound Interstate 75 in Northern Kentucky.

The closure happened around 9 p.m. at the Donaldson Highway Ramp, per the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

Two lanes reopened around 10:20 p.m., according to Kenton County Dispatch.

Erlanger Public Information Officer Charlie Loudermilk says it was an issue of refreeze on the highway that caused the crashes.

Crews were trying to clear a disabled car that hit the wall.

Meanwhile, a car was driving and lost control on the refreeze and hit a semi.

Loudermilk says three people went to the hospital with minor injuries.

Because there was still clean up going on in the area from a previous crash, Loudermilk says it was easier to shut down the highway due to all the debris.
