MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — A 12-year-old girl was killed Monday in a southwest Ohio highway pileup involving at least 86 vehicles, police said.
The Interstate 275 crash was one of at least four chain-reaction crashes that snared dozens of vehicles in the state on Monday. Parts of the state had snow showers, with heavier snowfall in some sections.
The fatal crash occurred near the Cincinnati suburb of Colerain Township. At least 20 people were taken to hospitals.
Separately, the State Highway Patrol said an estimated 50 vehicles collided on I-75, between Middletown and Monroe. Minor injuries were reported.
And the patrol said four trailer trucks and about 20 cars were involved in an afternoon pileup on I-71 near Mansfield.
Forecasts called for snow accumulations Monday ranging from 6 to 10 inches in western Michigan and between 10 to 20 inches in areas from northeastern Ohio through the lakeshore areas of upstate New York.
