Lexington Police say a pickup driver was fleeing the scene of an accident Thursday night when he crashed a second time and was killed.

Police say it started around 5:45 when the pickup truck hit a Mustang at Greendale and Mercer.

Investigators say the Mustang was pushed into the path of a FedEx tractor trailer.

They say the FedEx driver was not hurt, but the person driving the Mustang went to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

According to police, the pickup driver then left the accident scene and kept going down Greendale before hitting a Dodge Magnum.

Investigators say the pickup driver died.

They say an adult and four children in the Dodge were hurt and went to the hospital with minor injuries.

Part of Greendale Road was shut down after the accidents but was reopened to traffic later Thursday night.
