At least one person was killed in two accidents near the Kentucky-Tennessee border Wednesday afternoon.
The accidents happened in Whitley County on southbound I-75 Wednesday afternoon. The accidents happened about three miles apart at about 3 p.m.
Police say a total of five vehicles involved, including two semis and an RV that was pulling a trailer that had race cars on it with race car fuel.
One victim was flown to a hospital in Tennessee, and two others were taken by ambulance to local hospitals. Five people involved in the accidents were not hurt.
Officials say they expect all lanes of I-75 south in the area to remain closed for several hours.
