(AP) - The Lexington firefighter who was driving a fire truck that hit and killed a pedestrian has been put on paid administrative leave.
City spokeswoman Susan Straub told the Lexington Herald-Leader on Monday that Christopher Presley will remain on leave while authorities investigate what happened. She said the move is routine.
Police say 27-year-old Lauren Woodall Roady of Washington, D.C., died shortly after being struck Saturday night near Triangle Park. She was in town for a running competition.
Police have said the fire truck was on a non-emergency run and making a left turn when Roady was hit. City officials cited the ongoing investigation in declining to answer several questions about the crash, including whether Roady was in a crosswalk and whether the fire truck had a green light.
