More than 30 wrecks on slippery roads

Persistent snow and rain in Lexington contributed to more than 35 traffic accidents Wednesday evening.

Police reported eight injury accidents and at least 29 non-injury accidents since 4 p.m. Wednesday. Five of those accidents occurred on a small section of Interstate 75, forcing police to temporarily shut down north-bound lanes near Exit 113 about 8:30 p.m.

The lanes were re-opened about 9 p.m. after trucks put salt down.
