Travel on Ky. roadways treacherous after winter storm

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Ice and snow proved to be a dangerous mix for travelers Monday morning, after a winter storm rolled through Louisville and the surrounding area.

WDRB's Rachel Collier and photojournalist Pete Ruiz made the drive from Elizabethtown, Ky. back to Louisville Monday morning. Collier recounted what she saw.

"We saw a lot of wrecks on I-65 on our drive back to Louisville," she said. "We were heading back to the Metro from Elizabethtown around 9:30. We saw about six stranded drivers on I-65. That included a jackknifed semi hauling Cadillacs...and at least one hearse. Another semi -- a Miller Lite truck -- broke through the cable barriers, also near the Hardin-Bullitt county line."

WDRB's Valerie Chinn noted that the snow was soft and fluffy -- the kind children might like to play in, since so many of them have the day off due to school cancellations. But, Chinn observed, the winds are bitterly cold, so parents are cautioned to bundle their kids up.
