Police arrested a man after he ran a man over with his pickup truck and hit several cars in Lexington Tuesday night.
Police say Eugene Ashcraft, 61, was backing his truck out of a driveway downtown along Lancaster Avenue around 9:45 p.m. when he ran into a parked car and a utility pole. A man reached into the cab to put the truck in park, but was knocked down and run over. Witnesses say Ashcraft kept driving down the street and hit another parked car. A group of people finally managed to corral him until officers arrived.
Police arrested Ashcraft and charged him with DUI, assault and driving without insurance.
EMS took the victim to the hospital. Officials say he suffered serious injuries to his legs.
