Wet roads were blamed on more than two dozen traffic accidents in Laurel County, according to the Laurel County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators said there were 29-accidents during a 16-hour period on Thursday.

The Sheriff's Office said 11 of the accidents resulted in someone being seriously injured and 18 were property damage only.

The injury crashes happened all over Laurel County, including KY 490, KY 192 where a van hit a house garage, KY 472 where a car flipped over near a creek and the driver had to be airlifted from the scene.
