Burst of snow leads to crashes on northbound Interstate 65, slowing traffic


MUNFORDVILLE, Kentucky — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says Interstate 65 northbound and southbound lanes are moving slowly in central Kentucky after a series of weather-related crashes.

Spokesman Chris Jessie said a heavy burst of snow contributed to several northbound crashes between Munfordville and Upton, or between mile markers 68 and 75.

Northbound travel was initially blocked, but Jessie says one northbound lane had opened up by early Friday evening. He said southbound lanes were also backing up and that heavy snow was falling in the area.
