MADISON COUNTY, Ohio -- An accident on Interstate 71 in Madison County closed northbound lanes for more than an hour beginning at 1:10 Saturday afternoon while emergency workers removed the injured and sorted out what happened.

According to early reports from the Circleville post of the Highway Patrol, a horse trailer being pulled southwest bound on I-71 west of the Mount Sterling exit broke off its lead vehicle and traveled across the median, striking an SUV which was northeast bound.

A commercial vehicle of some kind then hit the SUV and trailer. One person was airlifted to OSU Medical Center and two others were taken to local medical facilities.

Witnesses told NBC 4 that the trailer was part of a small convoy of buses and equipment vehicles headed from a Delaware County School with band members headed for a competition near Cincinnati. The buses were reportedly not involved with any collision. The accident is still in early stages of investigation. Officials at the Olentangy High School in Lewis Center say their band buses were en route to the competition when the mishap occurred. No staff or students were injured, according to school board president, Scott Galloway.

Stay tuned to NBC 4 and refresh for more on this developing story.
