It was slick roads and black ice that caused several car crashes in Lexington and the surrounding area Saturday night.

In Jessamine County, a car crash sent a 12 year-old girl to the hospital with minor injuries. It happened around 7 p.m. on Highway 29 near West Jessamine High School. Sheriff's deputies say one of the drivers hit a patch of black ice, lost control, and veered into oncoming traffic.

In Lexington, police say there were 14 crashes between 6 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., including one injury accident.

As temperatures continue to drop over night, more water on the roads is expected to freeze causing a potential for hazardous road conditions.
