Interstate 71 Closes after serious crash, car fire

NORWOOD, Ohio (Derek Drake) -- According to the Ohio Department of Transportation, a serious crash has shut down the northbound lanes of Interstate 71 at the Smith Rd./Edwards Rd.

Around 2:30 p.m Thursday, a multiple vehicle crash with a car on fire was reported on I-71 northbound near mile marker 7.

We put calls into responding fire departments and law enforcement, but no information was immediately available regarding injuries or the expected length of the closure.

I-71 southbound is backed up as well, as fire crews needed to temporarily shut down the left two lanes to extinguish the car fire.

One lane has since been opened.
