A Lexington deputy coroner was sent to a hospital following a crash that knocked out power to a traffic light at a busy intersection Tuesday morning.
Deputy Coroner Adrienne Shelby was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital and later released.
Amanda Fitzpatrick-McGinnis, the driver of an SUV involved in the collision, was not injured, police said in a news release.
The crash occurred on Man o' War Boulevard at Pimlico Parkway around 6:45 a.m., the release said.

Shelby, who was driving a city-owned coroner's van, turned left onto Pimlico in front of a GMC Jimmy driven by Fitzpatrick-McGinnis, 33, of Lexington, the release said. Both drivers had a yellow light, Roberts said.
The force of the crash caused the SUV to "go off the roadway, across the sidewalk and between two light poles where it struck the traffic signal box" that controls the light at the intersection, the release said.
Police directed traffic until the traffic signal box was replaced about 1 p.m., traffic signal systems manager Steve Cummins said.
No one was cited. Both drivers were wearing their seat belts, the release said.
