Wintry Weather Leads To Slick Commute On I-75

The slick roads caused plenty of problems for drivers late Wednesday and early Thursday morning for drivers along I-75 north of Lexington.

One of the wrecks even involved a Central Kentucky police chief.

Police in Scott County say Sadieville Police Chief Jerry Powell hit an icy patch on I-75, losing control of his vehicle near the Sadieville exit.

Powell suffered some shoulder pain and went to Georgetown Community Hospital.

He is now back home.

Minutes after that accident, there was another crash as a semi driver lost control of his rig, running right into the wall.

Another tractor trailer got stuck when the driver tried to make it on an on-ramp onto I-75 in Grant County.

No serious injuries were reported.
