A woman was injured Sunday morning in a collision with a Lexington police cruiser that was responding to an emergency call.
The crash happened at the intersection of Manchester Street and South Forbes Road. A police officer was traveling inbound on Old Frankfort Pike to an emergency call downtown with his lights and sirens activated, said Lexington police Lt. David Biroschik. As the officer went through the street’s intersection with South Forbes Road, his cruiser collided into a car also at the intersection.
The civilian driver was transported to a University of Kentucky medical facility with minor injuries. Biroschik said the driver is a woman who is about 30-years-old. Neither the officer or the injured driver were identified by police.
The road was shut down following the crash. Police are investigating.
