Accidents on I-75 leave at least one dead, three injured

AMBERLEY VILLAGE, Ohio — Two crashes on I-75 early Sunday morning left at least one person dead and three injured.

Shortly after 1 a.m., police and deputies were on scene on the Ronald Reagan Highway near the village of Amberley.

Our team on site saw a car in the central reservation, in the middle of the highway.

Investigators have not yet provided any information on the causes of the accident or the severity of the injuries.

Our team spotted the coroner at this location shortly after 4 a.m.

Police informed our team that one person was taken to hospital for treatment.

A second crash occurred around 3:50 a.m. near marker 9.2, Cincinnati police said.

Investigators determined that a driver traveling north lost control of their vehicle and struck a tree.

A victim was freed using the “Jaws of Life,” Cincinnati firefighters said.

The driver and passenger were taken to UC Medical Center for treatment, police said.

CPD said in a statement that both were in serious condition. The Cincinnati Fire Department previously said one of the victims was in serious condition and the other was in critical condition.

Police said the driver of the vehicle was wearing a seat belt during the crash, but the passenger was not.

That pair of crashes closed sections of the highway and caused a backup as traffic was rerouted.

Description: All lanes are closed on I-75 North at the Ninth Street on-ramp due to an accident.

Ohio Department of Transportation cameras indicate these roads are back open.
