A vehicle spun out of control on Memorial Parkway Tuesday and had to be pulled back onto the roadway by a tow truck, according to police.

The young male driver, a minor, was not injured. The towing company took a number of hours to reach the vehicle, prompting many calls to police.

The roadway was closed for a brief time.

The city of Fort Thomas has requested a meeting with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, as well as a nearby apartment property owner, to discuss issues caused by icing on a section of Memorial Parkway, according to City Administrator Ron Dill.

Ice was likely the cause of an accident near the entrance to the Overlook Apartments early Tuesday morning. Although the section of roadway was widened by KYTC to allow more room for turning, wet conditions and low temperatures have created problems with icing in that stretch of road despite efforts to address the problem.

City officials will work with state officials to explore solutions. A date for the meeting has not yet been set.
