Sunday’s storms caused slick roads throughout the Bluegrass.  One man is in the hospital after his car flipped on I-75.

State Police are still trying to figure out if the driver was thrown from his car or if he crawled out after his car flipped along I-75 S just inside Madison County.

Police say around 9:00 pm, the man drove off the road, went into a ditch and hit a rock wall.  They aren’t sure when his car actually flipped but they say the wreck might have been caused by the wet roads.

No word on his condition.  Police say he was talking while being taken to the hospital in an ambulance.

Traffic was not blocked because of this accident but the ramp from Richmond Road to the inner loop of New Circle Road was closed for about 25 minutes tonight after another car flipped.

Lexington Police say speed and the wet road caused the driver to go into a ditch and flip as she was turning off the ramp.

Police say this driver complained of knee pain but was not taken to the hospital.
