SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A man is dead after a four-car collision on Interstate 75.

It happened late Wednesday afternoon around exit 125 northbound in Georgetown.

Scott County emergency crews say a car was stalled in the center lane of the interstate when a second car struck that car in the rear.

Then, two other vehicles tried to swerve to miss the first crash but missed. Those two vehicles had minor damage, while the first two vehicles had severe damage.

The coroner’s office says 53-year-old Richard Bolin, of Georgetown, died as a result of the crash. It was reported Wednesday that at least one other person was taken to the hospital.

The I-75 and the entrance ramp to I-75 from Ironworks Pike (Exit 12) and the ramp to I-75 north at the northern split were blocked while crews worked the scene.

Northbound traffic is being diverted at the I-75/I-64 northern split in Fayette County.

The crash is under investigation. Anyone who saw what happened is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 502-863-7855.
