LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The snow in Lexington came and went fairly quickly. Most flurries started around 8 a.m., by 9 a.m., the snow started creating problems on the roads.

Multiple accidents have been reported around Lexington. One car slid into the front porch of a building on Versailles Road. Police say the woman driving the car was in the turning lane and couldn't stop.

Another accident on Man O' War, involved five cars. Officials say one of those cars slid over the median of a bridge. That road was closed for about an hour.

Emergency crews have been busy responding to all of these accidents caused by slick roads.

"There have been several accidents this morning due to the slick roads and inclement weather," says Lt. Landon Berry, Lexington Fire Department. "It doesn't take a lot of snow for people to start sliding around."

We also talked to officials with Lexington streets and roads. They say that crews were called in early this morning to prepare. Crews were out putting salt down on the roads most of the morning. They hit the major roadways first, then worked their way out.

Luckily, temperatures have stayed above freezing so the snow is melting, with the help of some salt.

Lexington Police tell us that, as of 11 a.m., there were twelve non-injury crashes, and three injury crashes since 7 a.m.
