Lexington Police say a concerned driver led them to a man who was drunk behind the wheel.

It started around 8 Saturday night when a driver called 9-1-1 to report a truck that was swerving along Man O' War Boulevard.

Officers say they drove toward the Hamburg area, getting updates on where the pickup was headed.

Police finally caught up with the truck at Man O War and Winchester just seconds after they say the pickup went through a red light, hit a car and then flipped.

Cops say a passenger in the car had minor injuries and is expected to recover.

They say the truck driver was not hurt and was arrested for drunk driving.
