BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (WXIX) - One person is dead and another was flown to the hospital after a seven-vehicle crash Tuesday on I-75, according to Boone County Sheriff’s Major Philip Ridgell.

The crash happened around 4 p.m. in the area of Mary Grubbs Highway (Exit 171), he said.

A rear-end collision between two vehicles caused a chain reaction crash involving the other five, Major Ridgell explained.

He said the deceased driver and passenger flown to the hospital were in the same vehicle. The passenger has life-threatening injuries, Major Ridgell said.

Three other people were taken to the hospital. They are expected to be ok, according to Ridgell.

Tuesday’s crash completely shut down southbound travel for at least an hour before one lane was reopened.
