I-75 back open in Campbell County, travel still slow

CAMPBELL COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT)- The aftermath of multiple wrecks on I-75 in Campbell County has been cleaned up.

At least twenty vehicles were involved, in a total of eight wrecks that slowed or brought things to a halt from mile marker 144 on up to the state border with Kentucky both north and southbound Saturday morning into the afternoon.

However, TDOT warns that hazards still exist as you get close to mile marker 158.

Snow, ice and poor visibility may have played a role in the dangerous chain reaction that impacted cars, trucks and even a Greyhound bus with passengers on board.

Several people were taken to area hospitals for treatment of various injuries.

At one point the Red Cross opened up an emergency shelter at Jellico High School to help those involved in wrecks.
