Kentucky State Police are blaming winter weather for a crash that shut down a busy road near the Virginia and Kentucky border.

Highway 23 reopened just before 9:00 a.m. Thursday morning.

Troopers say 4 to 5 tractor trailers crashed before dawn Thursday morning.

According to investigators, the trucks all jack-knifed after hitting ice on the road.

No injuries were reported.
