Collisions on Kentucky Highways Amid Severe Winter Weather

Severe winter weather caused multiple vehicle pileups and hazardous road conditions in a number of locations across Kentucky on Thursday, January 6, with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet urging people to avoid travel.

Footage recorded by Travis Sanders shows a line of vehicles at a standstill on Western Kentucky Parkway’s eastbound lane around the 130 mile marker, he told Storyful.

Local media reported up to 30 vehicles were involved on the highway, where snowfall rates were forecast to exceed one inch per hour into early afternoon. Credit: Travis Sanders via Storyful
