Episode Narrative Areas of freezing rain and freezing drizzle caused roads to become very icy. Numerous accidents were reported, especially on bridges and overpasses. In McCracken County, a dozen wrecks caused major traffic problems. Interstate 24 westbound was closed near exit 11, and U.S. Highway 60 was closed near Barkley Regional Airport. Four people received minor injuries. Kentucky Highway 849 was closed in Graves County, where several cars slid off the road in a few hours. Area schools were closed. The wintry precipitation was caused by a weak surface trough of low pressure combined with a moist southwest flow aloft.
