Motorcyclist seriously injured in crash with SUV in Lexington

A motorcyclist was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with serious injuries Friday morning after his motorcycle collided with a left-turning SUV on Man o' War Boulevard.

The SUV was turning onto Blazer Parkway when the motorcycle clipped the back of the vehicle and skidded along Man o' War, Lexington police Lt. Clay Combs said.

A nurse and an off-duty police officer were in the area and gave the man first aid until an ambulance arrived, Combs said.

A trailer from Harley-Davidson on Man o' War picked up the motorcycle.

It was not immediately clear who had the green light, and the investigation is continuing, Combs said.
