Scores of vehicles snared in Ohio highway pileups

MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities say a southwest Ohio highway pileup involving as many as 85 vehicles has left one person dead.

The Interstate 275 crash was one of four pileups that snared dozens of vehicles in the state on Monday. Parts of the state saw scattered snow showers Monday, with isolated pockets of heavier snowfall.

One woman died in the I-275 pileup outside Cincinnati and at least 20 were injured.

A State Highway Patrol dispatcher says as many as 50 vehicles could be involved in a pileup on I-75, between Middletown and Monroe. Minor injuries are reported.

The patrol says four semitrailers and about 20 cars were involved in an afternoon pileup on I-71 near Mansfield.

Lanes of I-270 have been reopened following a multi-vehicle crash near Columbus.
