Man Hurt In Motorcycle Crash

A crash involving a motorcycle sends a man to the hospital.

Lexington police say a woman ran a red light at the Man O' War and Alumni Drive intersection and hit a man on a motorcycle. It happened Wednesday morning.

He was taken to UK hospital with injuries that are described as not life threatening. The driver of the SUV was not hurt.

Police say they will not file any charges because the driver admitted to running the red light.

    So thats the way it works. If you do something wrong just admit it. To think of all the people that wouldnt be in jail and prison if they had just admitted they did the crime. DUH!!!!! This is stupid she did something wrong, knows she did, so where are the charges?

    The Lexington Police Department should re-think (?) the way they consider running a red light as a way to stop cars and give tickets...A few months ago they were set up and waiting to give tickets to anyone running a red light and now if you run one and hit someone and say "Oh, I'm sorry, I did run that light, and I'm sorry I hit someone....Just who's relation is she?????????? You ever get behind a Lexington Police officer--No directional lights, hand to head with cell phone, and yes they do go thru red lights, so I guess all is great..and I agree with Voice of Reason

    Ha, Brady, let's apply that to all situations in life; then honesty truly is the best policy :) Do whatever you want as long as you admit to it. It's only those darn liars that need to pay for their actions!

    Duh? I agree 100% with you Brady; she admits to running the red light which in turn, made her strike another vehicle (motorcycle) and the person is in the hosptial because of it, yet no charges will be filed? Yes officer, I admit I shot that man for no reason; yes officer, I admit I abused that child; yes officer, I admit I run a meth lab and sell to children. Would those people be charged? HELL YES! Sorry, I don't get this riled up about stuff but this is ridiculous. I'm hoping this is a misprint and the woman has been charged. I'll keep watching.

    yeah, I'm a little confuse about the lack of charges as well. She ran the light. That's a traffic violation... it says, "they will not file charges because the driver ADMITTED to running the red light"???? I'm sorry officer, I ADMIT I was speeding by 20 miles over the limit, can I get out of the charges?

    Files should have been charged.It is against the law to run red lights.

    My sympathy and prayer go out to the motorcyclist. I agree there should be some kind of penalty for the driver running the red light. The driver admitted guilt and now the only consequence is going to be an increase in insurance. Yes, passenger vehicle drivers should be better educated with regard to motorcyclists and as for helmet laws, while I believe it is the choice of the rider, I also believe in using protective riding gear; boots, gloves, and helmet at the least.

    Doesn't seem right that you can be driving HUA and run a red light and cause injuries to a motorist operating their vehicle safely and there be no consequences.

    Assault charges should have been filed against this woman. Not having a helmet law for adults in Ky. is not the problem. Educating the passenger vehicle drivers to share the road with bikers is the answer.
