Several dozen crashes in Lexington overnight kept emergency crews busy and shut down lanes of Interstate 75 for hours, police said.
At least 13 passenger vehicles and three tractor-trailers were involved in the series of crashes on the interstate, WKYT reported.
Citywide, including the interstates, Lexington officers responded to 46 non-injury and six injury accidents between midnight and about 9 a.m. Friday, according to police. Icy road conditions, particularly on bridges, contributed to the wrecks. Reports indicate that none of the injuries were serious.
An overturned tractor-trailer shut down one lane of northbound I-75 for several hours, Lt. Jeremy Tuttle said. All lanes of northbound I-75 near the I-64 split reopened about 10:30 a.m.
Southbound lanes were reopened in time for the bulk of morning commuters, according to the Lexington Traffic Management Center.
