MASON, Ohio -- A crash involving two cars and a semitractor-trailer shut down northbound Interstate 71 between Western Row Road and Kings Mills Road at about 5 a.m. Tuesday.

Because the semi was leaking fluid onto the road, emergency crews weren't able to clean up the mess and reopen the highway until about 8:45 a.m., according to troopers from the Lebanon post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

One person involved had minor injuries and was transported to the hospital, police said.
