Pedestrian dies after being hit by car on Nicholasville Road

A pedestrian died Friday night after being hit by a car on Nicholasville Road in Lexington, police Lt. Christopher Van Brackel said.

The accident occurred about 9:46 p.m. between Lowry Lane and Zandale Drive. Van Brackel said the pedestrian, a man, did not cross the road in a crosswalk. The man got across one lane of the roadway. As he crossed the second lane, he was struck by a Buick Rendezvous, Van Brackel said.

The man was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 10:30 p.m.

Van Brackel said it does not appear that the driver, a woman, will face charges. The woman was not injured.

The identities of the pedestrian and the driver were not made available Friday night.

Nicholasville Road inbound at Lowry was closed after the accident and was to remain closed for hours, Van Brackel said.
