Snow plows from Hopkins County and Muhlenberg County are helping crews in Christian County, where the latest snow storm has caused a mess on Interstate 24.

This picture was taken this morning near the Pennyrile Parkway interchange.

The overturned semi was just one of 15 crashes along I-24 overnight.

Officials say most of the accidents happened as vehicles tried to pass others in the icy passing lanes.
