Pedestrian Killed by Lexington Fire Truck is Identified

County officials have identified the pedestrian struck and killed in downtown Lexington on Saturday night.

27-year-old Lauren Roady of Washington, D.C. was hit by a Lexington fire engine at the intersection of North Broadway and West Main Street just after 10:00 on Saturday night.

The coroner describes Roady's death as accidental, and says Roady died of multiple blunt force trauma.

Police say the circumstances surrounding the accident are still under investigation, but haven't yet clarified how the accident happened.

The intersection was blocked off by emergency officials well into Sunday morning.

Mayor Gray released a statement regarding the accident:

"Police are conducting a full investigation, as they do in all traffic fatalities. We anticipate we will have the results around the first of the year. Today I want to reach out to her family to express our sympathy for their loss. You are in our prayers. If my office can be of assistance, please let us know."
