Police: Slick Roads Cause Semi Crash

Posted: Updated:

CLARK COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)-- Slick roads played a part in a crash that had part of I-64 shut down.

It happened around 10:45 Thursday night near mile marker 102.

Deputies say a passenger car was driving slowly on the wet roads headed eastbound, when a tractor trailer came up on it. Although the semi hit the breaks to slow, it ultimately hit the back of the car.

No one in the car or semi-truck were hurt. The car was still driveable despite the damage.

Crews worked to clean up a bit of fuel that leaked and tow the truck away.

Some drivers say they were stuck in that backup for at least two hours.
