MetroSafe confirmed the crash happened at about 8:45 a.m. on Interstate 71 southbound, near the Zorn Avenue exit.

Traffic was initially stopped in order to get the wreckers to the scene of the crash, but as of 9:35 a.m., crews had moved the damaged cars to the side to allow some traffic to resume flowing.

It's not clear what caused the crash, nor was it known how many people were hurt or how seriously.
