Northbound I-65 reopens after crash


The northbound lanes of Interstate 65 in southern Kentucky are back open after a crash shut them down for hours.

Snow and ice made the roads slick near Franklin, KY, Monday morning, which may have caused multiple accidents.

A crash involving several cars and an 18-wheeler near Exit 6 closed the interstate.

One driver involved in the crash says he tried to stop but couldn't.

"As I tried to apply my brakes, I went into a slide on that bridge right there. The ice was a phantom. You can't see it, and when you really need your tires to brake, I was unable to stop," said Andre Ellis.

No injuries have been reported at this time.
