Breaking: Ohio interstate shut down following tense police pursuit of a semi truck


An Ohio interstate is shut down following an intense chase between police and a truck and trailer.

The chase began around today at 1:30 p.m. on I-275 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Some news outlets said that police believed the truck driver was holding his passenger hostage. At some point during the chase, the truck driver did stop and let the passenger out of the truck.

The chase is now over and the driver has been taken into custody.

At this time, it is unclear why the chase began or who the driver is.

“Northbound I-275 is currently closed at Combs Hehl bridge. Southbound is closed at Five Mile Road. Ohio Department of Transportation said the roads will reopen in about one hour,” WKRC reported.

This is a developing story. We will update as more information is available.
