Woman shot while driving on Man o’ War Boulevard

A woman was shot early Wednesday as she drove home on Man o’ War Boulevard, police said.

The victim told police she was driving near Buckhorn Drive when something hit her, and when she arrived at her home on Dale Drive, near Trent Boulevard, she realized she had been shot, police said.

She called police about 4:40 a.m. and was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t considered life-threatening, police said.

The bullet traveled through the window of the passenger side of her truck and grazed the side of her head, police said.

Police said there were two reports of shots fired in the area about the time the woman was shot.

There was no description of a shooter.

She’s the second person in the past two weeks to be shot while driving in Lexington. Another woman crashed her vehicle into a car dealership Oct. 20 when she was shot on Woodhill Drive near East Circle Road.
