Update: 7 hurt in Friday morning crash on Audubon Parkway

TRI-STATE (WFIE) - Slick roads were reported Friday morning in several Tri-State areas.

For the most part, Evansville roads were clear, but that wasn’t the case elsewhere.

The McLean Co. Sheriff’s Office says Highway 81 was closed between Hwy 2385 and Pond Drain Rd. due to a semi wreck and a downed power line.

They say the driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Around 3:45 a.m., four cars crashed on the east bound Audubon Parkway over Green River in Henderson County.

Deputies say ten people were involved in that crash, and seven of them had non-life threatening injuries.

Not long after that, officials reported a semi crashed on the Wendell Ford Expressway. They say the driver hit an icy patch just east of the Natcher.

In Warrick County, dispatchers say there was an overturned pickup truck at Sunset Drive and Highway 61.

No one is hurt.

We’ve heard other slide-offs in Warrick County, but no reports of injuries.

Dispatchers says deputies reported slick spots on parts of Oak Grove, Vann Road and Old 261 South from 66 into Newburgh.

Some schools were already out for illnesses, but some others canceled Friday morning due to weather.
