A motorcyclist escaped serious injury in a crash in Lexington Tuesday night.
Police say an SUV was turning into the Hardee's on the corner of New Circle Road and North Broadway around 11 p.m. when the motorcycle slammed into the passenger side. Witnesses say they heard a loud boom and saw the motorcyclist fly through the air. He suffered a non-life threatening leg injury, but was otherwise OK.
Police say they cited both the driver of the SUV and the cyclist for minor traffic offenses.
