Teen hit by car near Lexington high school

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Police are investigating after a pedestrian was hit by a car at the corner of the Blue Ash Drive and Clays Mill Road.

There was a heavy police presence at the scene, with at least eight police vehicles at one point.

There were two shoes in the middle the street, and the force of the accident smashed the windshield of the car involved.

Police say the victim was a teenager around 15-years old. Police believe he may have been heading to Lafayette High School at the time of the crash. One witness says she heard the victim screaming as emergency crews were loading the teen onto an ambulance.

"Well, being in close proximity to Lexington Catholic High and Lafayette High, a lot of students are of age. I suppose a lot of kids from the neighborhood cross here on daily basis," said Sergeant Billy Richmond with the Lexington Police Department.

Fayette County Schools confirms that the student hit was a freshman at Lafayette.

Several people on the scene tell WKYT accidents on this road are pretty standard. They say there was an accident in almost the same spot just last week.

The driver is not facing any charges at this time.
