Accident on I-75 Kills Two

Two people are dead from an early morning traffic crash in Madison County.  The accident shut down lanes in I-75 southbound for hours.  Kentucky State Police trooper Chris Lanham says the crash was caused by a vehicle going the wrong way.

“At 3:58am we received a complaint of a minivan travelling northbound in the southbound lane.  At 4am we received another call that there had been a collision involving this van and another vehicle”, said Lanham.

Lanham said a third passenger was taken to University of Kentucky hospital in critical condition.
