KSP working multiple collisions on Interstate 65
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Kentucky State Police say they are working multiple collisions along Interstate 65.
According to Trooper Daniel Priddy with KSP Post 3, multiple collisions have occurred on I-65 near the 40-mile marker northbound.
Police say at this time, they have responded to 54 non-injury collisions and nine injury collisions. Many of the crashes have been caused by drivers speeding and sliding on ice and snow, police say.
“One of the most dangerous things about this is it’s deceptive because it doesn’t seem like the roads are that bad,” said Trooper Priddy. “It’s just really slick and you don’t really realize it until you try to slow down or stop. And when there’s a vehicle in front of you that’s slid off the road or partially in the roadway, and then you try to stop. That’s when you really realize how slick the roads are.”
All three lanes a blocked at this time. Officials advise drivers to not travel today unless absolutely necessary.
