Sat on I75 for over 4 hours. Cops blocked everyone from using emergency turn around roads. Cops even blocked exit ramps before accident .
Thumbs down for KY cops on this one.

They blocked the "emergency turn around road". With the help of the cops they could have started sending cars across to the south bound lanes. NO ONE was talking about sending any car the wrong way. To trap people with babies, small children, elderly, etc. was not right.
Sorry that I upset you.

Thanks for the information.
I had assumed that the State Police would be in command as the accident caused a traffic backup covering a number of jurisdictions.
Sure would have been nice if all the different jurisdictions could have worked together and came up with a plan to help those stranded for so many hours.
My apologies to the Berea Police (Berea is one of my favorite KY towns).
