Slick spots on I-75 cause many crashes

Two families, perhaps unfamiliar with the dangerous stretch of road just north of the Sadieville exit, learned first hand this morning how bad it is.

"This area is slick. Cause when I started to stop I skidded a little bit, when I went to stop to help them. It's kinda slick in here," said driver Mary Anderson.

Anderson was on her way to Ohio when she saw the two cars, just moments after it happened.

"Just saw two vehicles skidding out. And they both, one went over there, one went over here. And doesn't look like major injuries," she said.

Deputies working the scene say it appeared it was one vehicle reacting to another that had slipped off the road, and that there wasn't a collision. But as you can see behind me, clearly causing some issues on I-75.

When Anderson saw that children were involved in the wreck, in both the truck and the SUV, she got out and did what she could to help.

"My UK blanket came in handy. Wrapped up one of the little girls over there and kept her warm. And she was cryin and shook up."

After getting a better look at the wreckage, she says she is surprised there weren't any serious injuries.

"Oh definitely. Oh my goodness, yes. Definitely. They're very lucky."

The Scott County Sheriff's Department says the area around mile markers one-thirty nine and one-forty are notorious for having slick surfaces.

They worked about twenty wrecks in that stretch but only one person was taken to the hospital as a precaution.
