Police car strikes moped; rider suffers head injuries

HERALD-LEADER STAFF WRITER
A Lexington (Kentucky) police cruiser hit a moped last night as the officer was on his way to report for his shift.

Police said the cruiser struck the moped on inbound Richmond Road near Shoreside Drive about 10 p.m.

Both vehicles were in the left lane and it appears the moped was hit from behind, Lt. Douglas Pate said.

The moped driver, who was not identified, was taken to University of Kentucky Medical Center with serious head injuries. Pate said he did not appear to be wearing a helmet.

Police did not identify the officer.

Pate said the officer was not using his emergency flashing lights or siren and the preliminary investigation shows speed does not appear to be a factor.

The duty status of the officer had not been determined, pending more information from the investigation.
