Two people were seriously injured in a head-on crash that shut down inbound Paris Pike Tuesday night.
Lexington police Lt. Jackie Newman said the collision occurred because of a vehicle traveling outbound in the inbound lanes. She said the driver of the outbound vehicle was from out of town; neither drugs nor alcohol was thought to be a factor.
Newman said each vehicle had just one occupant, and both were taken to the hospital. Both were in stable condition later Tuesday night.
The collision involved a pickup truck and another vehicle that appeared to be an SUV. Both vehicles were badly burned.
The crash occurred at about 7 p.m. near Muir Station Road.
