One driver was taken to the hospital after a two-vehicle accident along New Circle Road early Thursday morning.
The accident happened along the outer loop between Versailles Road and Harrodsburg Road around 5:30 a.m. It remains unclear how the vehicles collided. One car flipped up on its side and a second vehicle hit the cable barrier in the median. EMS took the woman driving the car that flipped to UK Hospital. Officials did not release any information on her condition.
The driver of the other vehicle was treated at the scene.
Police say an officer suffered a minor injury to his eye getting the woman out of the overturned car. He was treated at the scene and is expected to be OK.
Police blocked the outer loop for a short time as crews cleared the scene. The road is now back open.
