A semi carrying a mobile home on Interstate 75 Tuesday afternoon hit a slippery portion of the road south of Lexington and jack-knifed.

The truck blocked all northbound lanes.

Lexington Police reported 82 accidents between 7 a.m. and noon on Tuesday.

While the snow has stopped for now, road crews will face new challenges into Wednesday morning.

Breezy winds will continue to blow snow back onto roadways, especially in rural areas.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials say as temperatures drop, the salt and calcium chloride meant to melt the ice and snow will slowly stop working as areas fall into single-digit temperatures.
