Two large trucks collide, forcing Newtown Pike closure
Two large trucks collided Thursday afternoon at Newtown Pike and Loudon Avenue, closing the intersection.
Lexington police said that a box truck on Ash Street, across from Loudon Avenue, crossed Newtown Pike on a green light. A tractor-trailer traveling inbound on Newtown Pike crashed into the box truck, police spokeswoman Brenna Angel said. The box truck was flipped onto its side, and the driver was taken to a hospital.
The intersection was reopened about 4:20 p.m.
