Several motorcyclists remained hospitalized Sunday after being injured in a traffic accident while taking cover during a storm under an Interstate 75 overpass.
Sgt. Larry Wilson of the Scott County Sheriff's Department said five people were hospitalized after the accident Saturday night.
The Georgetown News-Graphic reported that the riders were part of a group sheltering from a storm when a van slid on the rain-slickened road and crashed into the cluster of bikes and riders. The crash occurred about 10 p.m. near exit 129, reports indicated.
One person was in critical but stable condition after being hit by the van, Wilson said. Four other riders suffered broken limbs, scratches and bruises when motorcycles were thrown into them.

Riders were taken to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital or Georgetown Community Hospital based on the severity of their injuries.
No one was injured in the van, Wilson said. The investigation was ongoing.
