    My deepest sympathy and prayers for the victims and families involved in and touched by this tragedy. This further displays a need for the Bluegrass Parkway to be extended up to an interchange with I-64 and junction with I-75 near Georgetown. Traffic that was bound for the parkway or I-64 west would not even have been this far south on I-75, Traffic bound for I-75 south or I-64 east can be detoured over Iron Works to Newtown and back onto I-75, south of the crash site. I-75 is THE major route connecting Michigan, Ohio,and their surrounding states to almost all of the southern states. Lexington is THE potential bottleneck caused by crashes or other delays, simply because we don't have any alternate routes that can carry the load.

    My husband and I were traveling north and saw the traffic that was backed up after the wreck. We extend our deepest sympathies to the families and hope that they will find some blessings and comfort in the memories they have of their loved ones.

    It was my sister that lost her life in this accident. She and her husband were passing through from Detroit to Greenwood, S.C. Thanks Ronnie for your warm sympathy.

    I wasn't there but I fill so guilty I was suppose to call her to check on them and made sure they ok but I didn't. It was like a part of me went with her. She will be missed dearly and her family is in my prayers.

    IREALLY THINK LEXINGTON POLICE DID A MUCH BETTER JOB OF DIRECTING TRAFFIC THAN CINN.DID.BUT WE NEEDED MORE OFFICERS OUT THERE DIRECTING CARS WHERE TO GO.OTHER MOTORIST WERE VERY RUDE,AND MADE US NERVOUS.I REALLY HOPE IF THERE IS EVER A MAJOR CATASTROPHE THAT IT IS HANDLED BETTER THAN THESE TWO WERE.I"M SORRY FOR THE FAMILIES THE CRASH IMPACTED.BUT IS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO SHUT-DOWN AN ENTIRE HIGHAY THAT MANY HOURS!

    We were detoured earlier in Ohio exit 2 from an accident then nearly two hours at this accident. We were detoured through horse park. Drivers become so aggressive and begin to pass on shoulders creating unhappiness to many drivers who continue to stay in the laned traffic. We actually listened to the entire KY basketball game during our delay. Hope the others are able to recover from the accident and prayers to the families who lost this person.

    We sat in traffic for 2 hours last night. I was appalled at the idiots racing up the emergency lane and in the grass on the right shoulder. For heaven's sake, someone LOST THEIR LIFE, can you not just wait and not possibly cause another accident?! It was ridiculous!

    We were stuck in the traffic in Lexington and Cincinnati both. I have to give a big kudos to the Lexington PD for the great job they did in the traffic flow and getting people off the interstate. The PD in Cincinnati did nothing but stand at their cars and talk to each other while the Lexington PD was actually directing the trafficc.
