Man on moped runs into trailer in Lexington

A man was taken to a hospital Friday afternoon after running into a trailer and injuring his head.

Lt. Tommy Perkins said officers were called shortly before 4 p.m. to the intersection of Golden Way and East New Circle Road after a man on a moped merged into the emergency lane and ran into a trailer that was being pulled by a Dodge Ram truck. The Dodge's driver was turning left off New Circle onto Golden Way.

Police said they think the man on the moped saw the pickup truck, but not the trailer the truck was pulling.

The moped and its rider slid under the trailer. He suffered head injuries, but the extent of the injuries was not immediately known, Perkins said.

No charges will be filed in the crash.
