A University of Kentucky senior was killed Wednesday in a motorcycle crash on Limestone, just a few blocks away from his listed address.
Ryan J. Greenwell, 22, of Cincinnati died in front of the Kentucky Clinic and UK Chandler Hospital, according to the Fayette County Coroner’s Office. He was a civil engineering student.
The crash occurred about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
The road was reopened to traffic about 11:25 a.m. after the wreckage was cleared.
Greenwell’s motorcycle and a car were in the inbound lanes of Limestone after the accident. Further details on how the wreck happened weren’t immediately available from police.
While police investigated, traffic backups occurred quickly on Limestone and some adjoining streets, like Virginia Avenue. Limestone was temporarily closed in both directions from Virginia to Gazette avenues.
