One accident on WK Parkway, at the 84 mile marker in Ohio County, involves three semi-trucks, with eastbound lanes completely blocked and traffic backed up for several miles. Also reported on WK Parkway are several vehicles off the road between the 98 and 100 mile marker in Hopkins County. Traffic is slowly moving through this area.

According to Kentucky Transportation Cabinet official, Keith Todd, there are also several vehicles off the roadway along I69, northbound between the Natcher Parkway interchange and the Caneyville exit.
Though the roads have been thoroughly treated for tis rough weather, do not expect that there are no slick spots. There are many, and driving conditions are currently dangerous. If you must drive this morning, take great care and use caution.
