TIPP CITY, Ohio (AP) — State troopers say a big rig's failure to stop for traffic in a construction zone triggered a seven-vehicle crash, killing two truck drivers and creating a line of flames on a southwest Ohio highway that remained partly blocked for the morning commute.

The State Highway Patrol says a tractor-trailer on Interstate 75 struck a car and then another rig Wednesday night near Tipp City, north of Dayton. Troopers say the second truck hit a third, which then struck three vehicles stopped in front of it.

Troopers said a woman in the first car that was hit was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren't considered life-threatening.

The collisions blocked I-75 in both directions for several hours overnight, but only the southbound lanes remained closed Thursday for the morning commute.
