Icy conditions caused 41 vehicles to pile up in a chain reaction just after noon Monday on southbound Interstate 75 in southern Kenton County, Ky., south of Cincinnati.

Six people were hurt, none with life-threatening injuries.

Kenton County Police Sgt. Ben Wilson said about 20 vehicles were disabled and hauled away on flatbed trucks from the scene.

Douglas Sage, of Dry Ridge, said it was snowing and visibility was about 100 feet when vehicles started sliding. A vehicle behind him slipped and flipped over in a culvert.

While Sage and others were helping the people in the overturned vehicle, it was struck by another car, injuring some of those who stopped to help, he said.
