Multiple crashes occured on Kentucky roads Sunday night after ice formed on the interstate.

Several crashes in Fayette County caused injuries. An 8-vehicle crash happened near Exit 108 on I-75 North around 11 p.m. One of the vehicles was a Greyhound bus. 10 people were injured, including at least 2 on the bus. The crash had I-75 North shut down.

At least a dozen crashes occured in Scott County Sunday night as well. Within a 7-mile stretch of I-75, emergency responders scrambled to help all of the drivers who had crashed after losing control on the roads.

In one crash, a tractor-trailer jack-knifed, striking a passenger car. In another incident, a driver was crossing a bridge in the same area and slid into a Sheriff's Deputy's vehicle.

Road crews are working on putting salt down to make the roads safer.
