With the weather as bad as it was Saturday morning, the Knoxville area saw multiple wrecks caused by the low visibility and ice on the roads.
Eight vehicles, including cars, a garbage truck, and a semi were involved in a collision on the I-40 ramp onto Alcoa Highway Saturday morning.
Dispatch confirmed the vehicles slid into one another on the ramp, causing a series of small wrecks.
Minor injuries were reported, and those suffering were transported to the hospital.
Other minor wrecks involving slick roads kept police busy all morning.
