A Lexington Police Officer is expected to recover after police say he lost control of his motorcycle and fell from it.

  

Police officials are praising the quick actions of one UPS truck driver with saving the officer's life.


Police say around 8:30 Tuesday night, the officer was riding back from the Lexington Christmas parade when he lost control of his police motorcycle on Newtown Pike. The officer fell from the bike, causing serious injuries to his legs.


According to police, an attentive UPS truck driver saw the accident happen and stopped his semi-truck in a way that blocked all lanes of the outbound side of Newtown Pike. The quick action by the driver kept the scene protected and stopped cars from hitting the injured officer.


The crash is still under investigation, police officials say.
