A two-vehicle accident caused a sport-utility vehicle to roll onto its side in one of Lexington's downtown intersections, blocking it for more than 30 minutes Monday.

The accident at East Short and North Limestone streets was reported about 11 a.m. No one was transported to the hospital and everyone was out of their cars by the time the fire department arrived, said Lexington fire Battalion Chief Joseph Best. Everyone was wearing their seatbelts when the accident occurred.

Lexington officer Tom Richards comforted Aiden Gross, 6, at the scene, after the SUV he was in with his mother, Deven Gross, was struck by a male driver in another car, Best said.
