Memorial planned for UK hockey player

A memorial service has been scheduled for UK hockey player Taylor Vit. The senior forward on the men's ice hockey team died Monday afternoon. He slammed his SUV into the back of a Lextran bus Sunday afternoon on Newtown Pike.

The hockey team is hosting the service for Vit at Memorial Hall. It will be 7:30 p.m and will be open to the public. A make shift memorial to Vit popped up earlier this week, outside Memorial Coliseum.

Lexington Police are still investigating what led to the crash but witnesses said Vit never braked his vehicle.
