The Lima Fire Department says in a news release the crash occurred just before 12:30 p.m. on Interstate 75 south near Ohio 309. Three tractor-trailers and six cars were involved.
The State Highway Patrol tells WTVG channel 13 that traffic had been slowed on I-75 because of a previous crash. A tractor-trailer traveling south on the interstate plowed into the slowed traffic, hitting several vehicles.
