KSP: Traffic along extended stretch of I-71 moving extremely slowly

Posted: Updated:

CARROLL COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - Major backups were reported along an extended portion of Interstate 71 Friday evening. Some drivers said their cars hadn't moved in nearly two hours, but traffic is now moving at an extremely slow pace.

At one point I-71 was closed at mile marker 40 near the Kentucky River. It has since reopened, but troopers said traffic was moving at a snail's pace.

Troopers said a vehicle had slid under a semi at mile marker 40 and crews were unable to reach the accident scene for quite some time. No one was injured in the crash.

KSP also reported vehicles having trouble getting up the hill near Carrollton, on I-71. Troopers were trying to get salt crews there.

Kentucky State Police asked for patience while the interstate was cleared.
