Lexington police say five vehicles were involved in the collisions at around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. Only one person was treated for a minor injury and they were treated at the scene. Police believe it was weather related as there was a heavy downpour at the time.

Part of I-75 southbound was temporarily shut down at Exit 104 but has since reopened. Traffic remains backed up toward Exit 108 (Man O War Blvd).
