CINCINNATI -- Several people were injured in two separate crashes Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. 

In Clermont County's Miami Township, police are looking for the driver who hit a boy on his bike Tuesday night and fled the scene, according to Lt. R.M. Hayslip. 

The driver hit the boy at about 10:45 p.m. on northbound Branch Hill-Guinea Pike near Paxton Guinea Road, police said. The suspect could be driving a 2001 to 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac with damage to the right headlight. 

The boy sustained “serious injuries,” and a medical helicopter transported him to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. 

He is a student at the Milford Exempted Village School District.

"We are incredibly saddened by this tragedy and our hearts go out to the victim and his family," district spokeswoman Meg Krsacok said.

The crash is under investigation, and anyone with information should call 513-732-1510.

Six people, including three children, were taken to the hospital after a separate crash in Queensgate, according to Cincinnati police. 

Two cars crashed at about 12:30 a.m. near 8th Street and Dalton Avenue. Those involved all had injuries that were not life threatening. 

An overturned semi closed Interstate 71 southbound to the Brent Spence Bridge early Wednesday morning. 

The semi crashed at about 12:40 a.m., according to dispatchers. No one was injured, and crews cleared the roadway by 6:30 a.m.
