An overnight bridge collapse in Ohio left one construction worker dead and one trucker injured, and I-75 South in Cincinnati has been closed.

Officials reportedly expect the closure to last at least two days.

According to Cincinnati.com, an overpass that was being demolished collapsed at about 10:30 p.m. and fell onto the southbound portion of I-75.
