Man in critical condition after Lexington crash

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - WKYT's Sean Evans was in the area shortly after it happened and noticed a group of people in the middle of the road standing around someone on the ground who was not moving.

Minutes later police and paramedics showed up and loaded the man into an ambulance, and rushed him to UK Hospital for treatment.
A spokesperson with Lexington police told WKYT Monday morning that the man was still alive, but is not doing well.

The victim, who police say is a man in his 40's, suffered multiple injuries including head injuries when he was hit by the vehicle.

Witnesses at the scene told WKYT they thought it was a hit and run, but police later clear that up saying the driver had not realized what she had hit, and stopped a short distance down the road to call 911.

Police say instances like this can serve as a reminder to the public, whether you're driving or walking across the road, to be aware of your surroundings and to use cross walks.

With schools back in session and more pedestrians potentially crossing in areas that they shouldn't, drivers should remain alert and be prepared for those instances.
Lexington Police officials told WKYT they don't anticipate the driver will face any charges.
