WKYT - Lexington - Headlines

Rain causes many crashes around Lexington

The rain created headaches for Lexington drivers during the Thursday morning commute, as it caused many crashes all around the city.

None of the accidents caused serious injuries, but some created a few traffic problems.

"It scared me. Out of nowhere, something hit the back of my car," driver Barbara Howard said.

Howard was driving her children to preschool when she was rear ended on Leestown Road. She and her children were not injured.

Earlier in the morning, a man crashed into a tree and a fence on Military Pike, near the Jessamine County line.

Lexington Police say a witness saw the man's car run off the shoulder of the road. The driver was unconscious at first, but became responsive before going to UK Hospital. Police say he has non-life threatening injuries.

On Richmond Road, a woman lost control of her SUV and hit a light pole.

The impact knocked the pole down, and the driver suffered shoulder injuries.

Drivers say it's best to slow down and stay alert while driving in the rain.
