Lexington, KY (WKYT) - Lexington Fire crews are blocking an area of North Upper Street, at West 5th Street, after an SUV slammed into an abandoned building.

The driver of the SUV told police he slid on wet roads, as a major storm was blowing through the city late Thursday morning. The SUV slid through a red light and hit a city code enforcement car before slamming into a utility pole and ending up in the side of a vacant building.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Code enforcement officers went to scene to inspect the safety of the building and Streets and Roads officials have blocked off that area while crews inspect the building.
