BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - The snow and below zero wind chills wreaked havoc on Kentucky’s highways and interstates Friday night Dec. 23.

A major accident was reported in Edmonson County.

Interstate-65 saw multiple collisions forcing the southbound lanes to be shut down at the 63-mile marker, and KSP Trooper Daniel Priddy posted a picture of a wreck at mile-marker 53. There were also reports of ice around the 43-mile marker northbound.

And in northern Kentucky, northbound I-71 was reportedly impassable at the 62-mile marker, resulting in a significant backup.
