A driver who was thought to have suffered a medical emergency died Monday after crashed through a fence on Georgetown Road.

The 56-year-old man, whom police did not identify, drove through the fence about 5 p.m. A passerby started CPR, said Lt. Eddie Hart of the Lexington police.

The man was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Hart said.

Hart said police do not think the man sustained significant injuries in the wreck.

Police investigated about 30 collisions Monday, which is normal for a rainy day, Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said. There were several reported injuries.
