MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) — There have been three separate highway pileups involving dozens of vehicles in Ohio.
Authorities say as many as 50 vehicles could be involved in a pileup on Interstate 75 in southwest Ohio. Media outlets report a separate accident involving at least 10 vehicles has closed I-275 outside Cincinnati. And the southbound lanes of I-270 near Columbus were closed after a multiple-vehicle pileup.
A dispatcher at the State Highway Patrol says the I-75 crash occurred Monday in the southbound lanes under whiteout conditions, between the cities of Middletown and Monroe. The dispatcher says minor injuries have been reported.
Scattered snow showers were expected in parts of Ohio on Monday, with some pockets of heavier snowfall. National Weather Service forecasters had said that could reduce visibility and produce a quick coating of snow.
