ERLANGER, Ky. -- A northern Kentucky police department spokesman tweeted drivers should “stay off roads” Saturday evening.
Snow showers coupled with freezing temperatures made many roads icy and slippery Saturday evening.
Erlanger Police Department Spokesman Jon Sterling tweeted that emergency situations are priority for first responders. He said minor crashes and stuck cars “will be stacked.”
We are getting reports conditions deteriorated quicker than forecasted. The best advise is to stay off roads until further notice. We will be responding to emergency calls 1st. Calls of minor accidents & vehicles stuck will be stacked. @WLWT @WCPO @Local12 @fox19 @700wlw

A crash closed Interstate 275 in both directions at US-50 around 5:30 p.m. Saturday. In Norwood, drivers had trouble getting up the hill on Cypress Way.
Tracie Phillips, a driver for Affinity Air Limousine Service, said she noticed at least four cars that had slid off the road driving from Downtown.
“I would suggest taking it slow especially around curves 'cause it's a little slick,” Phillips said.
Pendleton County Emergency Management tweeted that multiple vehicles had crashed or slid off the roads and recommended drivers keep a winter supply kit in their car.
