Chain reaction crash snarls I-75 traffic in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A chain reaction crash clogged traffic on southbound I-75 in Fayette County early Friday evening, according to Lexington Police.

It happened around 6:00 p.m. near mile marker 120, according to investigators.

Police say a car and a truck hauling farm supplies slowed in the southbound lanes, but an SUV behind them didn’t and slammed into the back of the truck, pushing it into the lead car.

Two people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

Two southbound lanes were closed while crews cleaned up the wreck scene as police investigated, which led to a traffic backup. All lanes had reopened by 8:00 p.m.
