SPRINGDALE, Ohio (WKRC) - One person was killed in a chain reaction crash on I-275 Friday afternoon.

Springdale Police said a tractor-trailer rear-ended a pickup truck on eastbound I-275 near SR 747 at about 1:15 p.m. That forced the pickup into the car in front of it. The pickup truck caught fire, killing a person inside.

The Ohio Department of Transportation said that the eastbound lanes and all ramps from SR 747 to the highway were closed. The closure was expected to last for hours. I-275 has since reopened.
