(Cincinnati, OH) - A blast of snow that moved across Cincinnati's northern suburbs made a mess of traffic Thursday morning.
Icy conditions contributed to a number of accidents and one of them has shutdown I-75 at 275. There are also multiple accidents across I-275 from Forest Park to Loveland as well as on 71 near 275.
A fatal accident on 75 just north of 275 in Butler County is where two people were killed, with one person being struck by a vehicle. The victim was involved in an earlier accident and stepped out of his car and was hit.
A commuter to Dayton said drivers should beware of icy conditions on Rt. 4 from Germantown to Dayton.
In Northern Kentucky, multiple vehicles crashed on WB 275 on the bridge over the Licking River near the AA Highway exit closing down the highway and SB 71/75 at Burlington Pike also closed due to an accident.
Cincinnati Police temporarily only responded to injury accidents.
@CincyPD has enacted the Emergency Auto Accident Reporting Procedure. While this is in effect we will only respond to injury related accidents. Drivers involved in non-injury accidents should exchange information & report at a later time.— Cincinnati Police (@CincyPD) March 8, 2018
