A fiery crash on Harrodsburg Road caused life-threatening injuries and burns to the motorcyclist Tuesday night, said Lexington police Lt. Jackie Newman.
An inbound Toyota SUV was turning left onto Fort Harrods Drive when the outbound motorcyclist collided with it just before 7:30 p.m.
The SUV flipped onto its side after the collision. The motorcycle burst into flames.
Newman said the male motorcyclist’s identity had not been determined Tuesday.
The driver of the SUV sustained minor injuries but was not taken to the hospital. A man and child who were riding in the vehicle were not injured.
