Several people were injured Monday in a five-vehicle accident on Nicholasville Road in Jessamine County.

Authorities did not release specifics about the injuries.

Nicholasville Deputy Fire Chief Kevin Baker said a few of the injuries were severe.

Baker said the rescue crew had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate people from two of the vehicles.

"One was a very involved extrication," Baker said.

The accident happened about 9 a.m. at Nicholasville Road and Ashgrove Pike.

Baker said the road was closed for two hours.
