Traffic is still being routed to the left lanes near the Taft Rd. exit (I have no idea where exactly this is the closest I can guess is Cincinnati) while crews continue to clean up the crash scene. What are they cleaning? Oil, fruit, clothes? No, fashion magazines are to blame for a big mess and traffic jams on I-71 Wednesday morning. Around 6:30 a.m., two semis crashed in the southbound lanes near Taft. One was hauling magazines, specifically, W, which were then strewn all over the highway. There are no reports of injuries. Southbound I-71 was like a giant parking lot, with at least a 40 minute delay from the Norwood Lateral into downtown. And all because of a absolutely fab publication.
