50 vehicle crash: Ohio [PHOTO/VIDEO] pile-up, A 50-vehicle crash Monday morning off Ohio off I-75 resulted in 18 people being transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

A snow squall in Cincinnati Monday slickened roads and blinded motorists, triggering two massive pileups that left a 12-year-old girl dead, authorities said.

The crashes on Interstates 275 and 75 also left about 20 people injured, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

The pileup on I-275 took place about 11:30 a.m. and involved at least 87 cars and trucks by the time it was over. The highway was closed for hours.

"It was just chaos, absolute chaos," Lt. Tory Smith of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office told the Enquirer.

The newspaper said the unidentified 12-year-old girl died when she got out of her car after the accident and was struck by a steel guardrail cable that snapped after being hit by a car.

Up to 50 vehicles were part of the I-75 pileup that occurred about the same time.
