The beginning of February brought hazardous conditions for Kentucky drivers, and wet roads were blamed for many different accidents across Kentucky. Several accidents in Northern Kentucky occurred on Sunday, February 5th, 2012.
A two-vehicle accident in Lexington took place around noon on Sunday, when two cars crashed into each other at the I-64 and I-75 northern split. One driver in this accident was injured and taken to an area hospital with unknown injuries. Officials indicate that wet pavement on the interstate likely contributed to this crash.
Just prior to this wreck, another crash in Clark County on Mount Sterling Road was also caused from slick roads, according to officials. This Kentucky accident happened around 11:00 AM. Police were advised that there could be a possibility of dead motorists due to the violent crash; however, when the Clark County Fire Department arrived on scene, the driver of the totaled car was responsive and was transported to an area hospital for medical treatment.
In this wreck, the driver went off the side of the road and crashed into two utility poles. Authorities said that the crash was so powerful that the telephone pole was cracked in half, and the power pole was bent.
Earlier in the day on Sunday, the wet roads also contributed to another car crash in Lexington at the intersection of Russell Cave Road and New Circle. Authorities report that a van slammed into the back of a car, sending the driver of the passenger car to the hospital.
The Northern Kentucky accident attorneys of Schachter, Hendy, & Johnson would like to extend our well wishes to all of the victims following these crashes and wish everyone involved a fast and full recovery.
