A Nicholasville man died after his motorcycle crashed into an SUV on Nicholasville Road just before midnight Sunday, according to Lexington police.
A motorcycle was traveling at high speed on inbound Nicholasville Road when it collided with an outbound Dodge sport-utility vehicle that was turning left onto Southpoint Drive, Lt. David Biroschik said. The SUV was turning on a flashing yellow light, Biroschik said.
The motorcyclist, identified by the coroner's office as Clinton C. John, 35, died at the scene, Biroschik said. He did not know the condition of the SUV driver.
Both inbound lanes of Nicholasville Road and one outbound lane were closed for several hours while the collision was under investigation.
