Six people were injured Monday in a car crash that affected traffic for hours on Lexington's Newtown Pike near New Circle Road.
One person sustained "pretty significant, critical injuries," Fire Battalion Chief Marshall Griggs said. However, none of the injuries was thought to be life-threatening.
"It now appears that everyone will survive," Lexington police said in a news release.
Inbound and outbound lanes of Newtown Pike were reopened Monday afternoon after portions were closed for more than two hours, according to the city's traffic-management Web site.

About 11:10 a.m., an older model Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by John W. Haddix II of Lexington crashed into a Volvo V70 station wagon driven by Patricia Daniels, also of Lexington.
According to police, Haddix ran a red light, smashing into Daniels' car as she was pulling out of the parking lot of Lexmark.
There were five people in Haddix's car; none of them was wearing a seat belt, police said. Daniels was wearing a seat belt, and her car was equipped with front and side airbags, which helped minimize her injuries, the release said.
