LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - University of Kentucky police say they are investigating a serious crash on campus Tuesday night involving a motorcycle.

The crash happened around 8:30 p.m. at Tates Creek Rd. and Alumni Dr.

Police believe excessive speed was a factor in the crash. They say the motorcycle was traveling at a high rate of speed, crossed into oncoming traffic, and hit a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction.

The motorcyclist was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and is still in critical condition Wednesday morning.

UK police tell us the driver was not a UK student.

No one else was hurt in the crash.

The Lexington Police Department’s Crash Reconstruction Unit was called to the scene to help with the investigation. The area was closed for several hours for the investigation.
