COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Police say it appears several vehicles drove over the body of a woman found dead on a major highway in Ohio's capital city.

Travelers reported the body in the middle of the road early Wednesday morning on Interstate 71 north of downtown Columbus. That prompted police to close several miles of northbound I-71 during the morning commute.

Columbus police said the woman's identity was unknown as of midday Wednesday. No further details about her or her cause of death were immediately released.

It also wasn't clear how the woman died. A dispatcher told The Columbus Dispatch that officers were investigating whether the woman had died before being hit by a vehicle.
