20-30 vehicles involved in pileup on Western Kentucky Parkway during storm

ELIZABETHTOWN, KY – A snowstorm that moved through Kentucky Thursday created hazardous road conditions and led to a massive pileup on Western Kentucky Parkway in Hardin County.

According to WLKY, the incident involved an estimated 20 to 30 cars and semi-trucks near the 131 mile marker as the roadway was covered in snow and ice.  Police said there was an initial collision with at least 12 vehicles at about 1:30 p.m., followed by secondary collisions.  So far no injuries have been reported.

A portion of the parkway had to be shut down in both directions before reopening at about 6:30 p.m.

Motorists were advised to use extra caution Friday morning, as plows continued to move through the area clearing the roads.

In Louisville, WLKY reported there were 127 snow-related accidents with no injuries and 28 accidents causing an injury as of 9 p.m. Thursday.
