LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A man has died in a collision at the intersection of Man o' War Blvd and Victoria Way Friday morning.

Lexington police say it happened at around 8:30 a.m. Friday. They say they learned that a pickup truck had run a red light and struck a white Lexus on the driver's side as it was attempting to cross Man o' War from Victoria Way. The driver of the pickup truck said that the rising morning sun had obstructed their view and couldn't see that the light was red.

Due to the collision, Man o' War Blvd was shut down in both directions between Nicholasville Road and Belleau Wood Drive at the Victoria Way intersection.

The man who died was identified by the Fayette County Coroner's Office as 35-year-old Aaron Mabry.

The collision is still under investigation.
