Lexington Police Officers Released From Hospital After Crash

Two Lexington police officers have been released from the hospital after their cruisers collided at a busy intersection.

The wreck happened late Tuesday morning at the intersection of Versailles Road and Red Mile Road.

Police say both cruisers were responding to a foot pursuit happening near downtown.

We're told both cars did have lights and sirens on at the time of the crash.

Police say Officer Michael Seabolt was traveling eastbound on Versailles Road and Sgt. David Marcum was headed north on Red Mile towards Forbes Road when they crashed.

Both Seabolt and Marcum were taken to UK Medical Center, from where they were released Tuesday night.

    Stay out of prison and stop breaking the law and you wont have any problem with law enforcement. In other words, stick to your list.

    I think I've narrowed down Po-Po's problem. The last time his family got together he didn't get to sit at the big table and noticed that everyone with a badge did. He feels left out, and somehow cheated. Po-Po you say you are appalled by stories of beatings, etc. Appalled enough to notify internal affairs? Strong enough to go to them? I don't mind that you wouldn't help a stranger in need, not everyone is that strong. I have worked with both the officers involved in this crash and I assure you neither would hesitate to help you anyway they can, everytime you call, even when they know some folks don't recognize help when they see it. Do a ride along, with an officer you're not related to, and compare how they act in the public eye with how they act in private. I bet you will be pleasantly surprised at the professionalism. Or are you strong enough to do that?

    Anonymous, my dad was a cop and he was never there for me. Other people in other lines of work are also in danger. What if I fall off of the trash truck today at work? I could get hit by a car.

    Earl and Po-Po have dumbed this discussion down too much, I'm out.

    I can tell that po po is a joke. He does not get the connection that a real soldier and citizen like anonymous. You can tell in his posts that he is even jealous of him. You do not even know anonymous and yet he makes you feel insecure. When did this start in high school? Did you get turned down by the prom queen? let this stuff go. You are probably one of those guys that are like yea I would have got the silver star if and things like that. Do not be mad you are a 44C. Take pride in what you do.

    Seems like a nerve has been struck with Popo be dmned. I knew he would claim to be an infantryman when he was called out on it. Kymom you are exactly right about this guy. I would hate to hear the war stories he tells in his daily job at Krogers or Lowes. There are two types of NG guys, guys who were active duty and want to stay active with the military. Most of them are fine upstanding men and women. They are very respectable people in our community. Lawyers, police officers, pharmacists, etc. Then the ones like popobdmnd. They want to get all the respect and do none of the work. Those guys work at Krogers and Lowes and tell everyone they were in Special forces etc. Unfortunately they give the others a bad name. Po po I know you type. You are still mad over high school. you probably dream you are going to win the silver star or something. You are a 44C if I ever seen one. you probably steal pot when you are c utting dope in the summer.

    Anonymous, fast food workers do get killed and shot at their jobs. Watch the news and you will see it happens. There are no police officers standing in front of the bullets. People get robbed, beated, raped everyday the police get there AFTER it happens. I dont really understand why you people act like they stand in between and keep these things from happening. Sure police have a job that is important but so does everyone else. It keeps the world spinning. Their lifes are no more valuable then yours.

    i can't believe two police cruiser hit each other and i am so sick and tired of hearing how law enforement is their life they are so deciated to protect and serve they were to busy running to get their nose in something that one could have taken care of law enforcement is just a job they get paid like all other employees and thats the reason i think this way is because its what they have shown me most officers i know are nosy and bullies they like to show off their authority and if they want respect they should show it and i am sure they would get it

    Anonymous, thank you for your service, too, as well as the men and women protecting us (sometimes from ourselves) on the streets of Lexington. I know very well the sacrifices both of your professions make every day and appreciate it.
