Slippery conditions probably contributed to a six-vehicle wreck on southbound Interstate 75 near Clays Ferry early Wednesday morning, according to Lexington police.
Lt. Mark Brand said six vehicles, including a tractor-trailer, went out of control and crashed about 5:30 a.m. Some vehicles ended up in the median. The wreck temporarily closed southbound lanes and backed up traffic.
No one was seriously injured, and southbound traffic was back to normal by about 7:30 a.m., police said. One person was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, fire officials said.
The wreck occurred just north of the Clays Ferry bridges over the Kentucky River, according to police.
Initial reports suggested that slick roads were not involved. But Brand said officers determined that slippery conditions probably contributed.
