Light snow, cold weather causes travel woes in Ky.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A winter weather advisory remains in effect in central and most of the eastern counties of Kentucky, but drier air is moving into the commonwealth and snow flurries are ending.

Slippery driving conditions still plague motorists Tuesday morning.

On Monday afternoon, eight people were injured and 41 vehicles had to be towed after chain-reaction crashes on Interstate 75 near Dry Ridge in northern Kentucky. None of the injuries was life-threatening.

Another slippery section of Interstate 75 was the undoing of a tanker truck later Monday when it slid, struck a car sending it into a second car and rupturing the cargo tank of the truck. The highway was closed while a diesel fuel spill was cleaned up. There was an injury involved.

Travel conditions were expected to improve throughout Tuesday.
