A section of Interstate 75 where at least 12 vehicles were involved in five different accidents, has re-opened and the involved vehicles have been cleared.
The wrecks in the northbound lanes of I-75 in Rockcastle County had traffic backed up for quite a while.
The scene was at the 55 mile marker and police say it involved at least 12 vehicles. Authorities are investigating five separate wrecks that happened in that area. It's believed that one wreck, when a car first hit a truck, led to the others. Officers on the scene tell LEX 18 one person was airlifted from the scene, two children were taken to the hospital by ambulance.
