WILLIAMSBURG (WATE) – A chain-reaction crash shut down Interstate 75 South in Kentucky on Tuesday morning.
The crash started when a Jaguar hydroplaned at about 7:30 a.m. and hit a guardrail, according to investigators. A tractor trailer hit the Jaguar and then three other 18-wheelers and a mini-van wrecked.
All lanes of I-75 South at mile marker 1 near the Tennessee-Kentucky state line were closed.
The interstate reopened at about 12:30 p.m.
Two people were injured and taken to Jellico Hospital. Their conditions have not been released.
Investigators think low visibility might have led to the chain-reaction crash.
