The girl died in the I-275 pileup outside Cincinnati. At least 20 injured people were taken to hospitals.
A State Highway Patrol dispatcher said an estimated 50 vehicles were involved in a pileup on I-75. Minor injuries were reported.
The patrol said four semitrailers and about 20 cars were involved in an afternoon pileup on I-71 near Mansfield.
Lanes of I-270 were reopened following a multi-vehicle crash near Columbus.
