COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN) -- Central Ohio has seen two deadly crashes within less than 7 hours.

The first happened just after 8 p.m. Friday on eastbound I-70 at I-270 on the west side of Columbus. That crash involved a motorcycle and minivan. Traffic was detoured around the crash for several hours while investigators worked to find out what happened.

Shortly after 2:30 a.m. Saturday a single-vehicle crash on I-670 eastbound shut down the ramps to I-71 near downtown. A woman was ejected from the vehicle and pinned underneath it. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The identities of those involved in the crashes have not been released.
