A multi-vehicle crash involving four 18-wheelers, a mini-van and Jaguar car shut-down all lanes of Interstate 75 South in Kentucky Tuesday morning.

The wreck happened around 7:30 a.m. at milemarker 1 near the Tennessee/Kentucky state line. Deputies on-scene told 10News at 10:30 that all lanes of I-75 South would be closed for several hours.

Investigators believed the chain-reaction crash began after the Jaguar hydroplaned and struck a guard rail. A passing big-rig then hit the car. Seconds later, additional 18-wheelers and a mini-van became tangled in the wreck.

Two people - the driver of the Jaguar and one of the 18-wheelers - were injured and taken to Jellico Hospital. There was no immediate word on the extent of their injuries.

Officials said low visibility was a factor in the crashes.
