One person was killed and two others injured in a crash early Friday on Versailles and Rice roads, about one-quarter mile past Man o' War Boulevard.
Police said the accident happened about 1:30 a.m.
A 2004 white Chrysler 300 driven by Evan D. Lounsbury, 23, of Lexington, was outbound on Versailles Road when Lounsbury lost control of the car and it crossed into the inbound lanes, rotating and traveling backward where it was struck by a Ford Taurus, according to a release from the city's collision reconstruction unit.
Lounsbury was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Taurus, William E. Goggin and a female passenger were taken to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.
