10News spoke with drivers who were waiting to get off the interstate Tuesday afternoon. Staci Meadow, a driver from Pulaski County, KY, said she started seeing the traffic back up for at least five miles.
"People kind of didn't know where to go. People were going one lane, no one was passing anybody. These big trucks each side of you; it was exhausing," said Meadow.
As of 9:15 p.m., traffic off the interstate was backed up for about two miles from exit 134, according to TDOT.
