Nicholasville Road at Man O'War Boulevard was backed up Friday afternoon, following a two-car crash involving a Lexington police officer.
Police say an officer was driving inbound on Nicholasville Road with the lights and siren on, when his cruiser entered the intersection at Man O'War Boulevard. That is when the officer's cruiser was struck on the passenger side by another car.
The officer and the driver of the other car have non life-threatening injuries.
Traffic in that area had to be diverted for most of the afternoon, as accident reconstructionists were busy at the scene.
