10-vehicle wreck on Kentucky state line injures 2

Two people suffered injuries in a car accident on the state line between Kentucky and Tennessee, but it could have been much worse. There were a total of 10 vehicles involved in the pileup wreck, which happened in snowy conditions out on Interstate 24.

The crash, per the Kentucky State Police, happened close to Fort Campbell and mile marker 91. It occurred right around 3:00 in the afternoon, so further limited visibility due to darkness was not an issue.

Snow and ice did play a role, though, as pictures show multiple smashed vehicles sitting in the snow on the side of the road. The police said that the wreck started out as just a single-vehicle crash. One vehicle slammed into a cable barrier while driving east.

Police came to the scene to investigate that first crash. While they were there, a driver in a Nissan Rogue went out of control. This caused a chain reaction. The vehicles behind the Rogue could not stop in time, and they all began to slam into one another right near the site of the first wreck.

The two people who were hurt did not have life-threatening injuries, but they were brought to Jennie Stuart Hospital in Hopkinsville to get medical treatment. Due to the size of the wreck, the lanes running east had to be closed down all the way to 7:00 p.m.

Winter weather leads to many chain-reaction crashes all around the country, and it's important for those who are involved in these wrecks to know what legal options they may have to seek financial compensation.
