Honey-carrying truck crash closes SW Ohio lanes

CINCINNATI (AP) — Southbound Interstate 71 lanes near the Ohio River have been closed during the morning rush hour after an accident involving a truck that was reportedly carrying honey.

Lanes were closed at Fort Washington Way, a major connector for motorists to get to the Brent Spence Bridge crossing to Kentucky.

The truck crash occurred at about 5 p.m. Wednesday. Traffic was re-routed.

WLWT reported that an officer on the scene blamed the difficulty on clearing up the accident on honey spilled from the truck.
