Site cleared after multiple wrecks block Purchase Parkway

UPDATE: KYTC says the site is cleared, and all lanes are open. 

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says multiple crashes and two overturned vehicles have been reported along the Purchase Parkway around the 26 mile marker between Kentucky 131 and the U.S. 45 Mayfield Exit. 

KYTC spokesman Keith Todd says it’s estimated five vehicles are off the road or otherwise disabled. The crashes are blocking both northbound and southbound traffic.

Todd says drivers should avoid that area if possible. A self-detour along KY 58 through Mayfield will let drivers avoid that section of the parkway.
