There was a violent car crash near the entrance to ABC 36 on Man O' War Boulevard on Monday night.

Lexington Police said a man was driving too fast along Man O' War when he lost control of his car, barely missed the ABC 36 sign at the television station's entrance, hit an embankment, went airborne and crashed through a plank fence into a field next to the television station.

Investigators said the driver's injuries were not life-threatening.

He was taken by ambulance to the hospital. 

The driver's name was not released.

Man O' War was temporarily closed, which caused a traffic backup.

Traffic was moving smoothly again about 45-minutes after the crash.
