UKPD and the Lexington Police department responded at around 5:30 p.m. to a car collision with a light pole at Euclid and Aylesford, across from the police station, UK police chief Joe Monroe said.

The driver told police that his accelerator stuck, causing him to continue into the light pole and damaging the car.

The Lexington Police Department took the driver’s statement, Monroe said. They have not yet been reached for comment.

Joe Best, the Lexington Fire Department’s spokesman, said that no one was injured in the Aylesford crash, although the light pole had been knocked over.

Shortly beforehand, Monroe said UKPD received a call about a two-vehicle collision at Rose Street and Columbia at 5:08 p.m.

UK spokeswoman Kathy Johnson said a minor injury resulted from the two-car crash.

Monroe confirmed that one female was transported to the hospital, complaining of neck pain.

He added that there was damage to the vehicles.

“It was non-life-threatening injuries, for sure,” Best said.
