Slick roads caused many crashes overnight and early Monday in Lexington.
Multiple crashes occurred in rapid succession early Monday, sometimes on the same stretch of roads.
Todds Road between Todds Station and North Cleveland roads was shut down for more than two hours after several collisions, according to the Lexington Traffic Management Center.
Outbound Leestown Road between Dolan Lane and the Scott County line reopened roughly 90 minutes after it was shut down with at least three separate crashes. One injury collision involved at least three vehicles, the traffic management center said.
Other crashes were reported at Vine and Main streets; Ridgeway and Fontaine roads; Eastland Drive at Industry Road; Winthrop Drive and Millpond Road; and Military Pike and Keene Road.
About 8:30 a.m., police responded to a vehicle that crashed into a wall on Interstate 75 northbound near the Ky. 418 exit.
Crews have been out since 8 p.m. Sunday treating the roads, the city said. Main roads are in good condition, but ice was a problem in some locations, including neighborhood roads, according to the city.
Road conditions in Lexington and surrounding counties were described as mostly covered or partly covered by snow, according to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
Police didn’t have updated totals early Monday. But between 9:30 p.m. Sunday night and 4:15 a.m. Monday morning, officers responded to 48 non-injury crashes, 28 motorist assistance calls, two crashes with injuries, six traffic collisions and 10 calls on interstates 75 and 64, police said.
“Use added caution this morning due to possibly sick roadways,” the traffic management center said. “Take your time, slow down, and increase following distances.”
The city’s emergency weather plan is in effect through Monday, the city said.
