UPDATE: Police have reopened the outer loop of New Circle Road between Leestown Road and Old Frankfort Pike, though traffic is extremely heavy.
It had been closed earlier due to a three-vehicle injury accident involving two cars and a tanker truck.
Lexington police say the driver of a gold car was pulled out of it by other drivers. That driver was not seriously hurt.
Two people in a silver car had to be cut out by firefighters. They were seriously hurt. The driver of a tanker truck was not hurt. There was not any fuel in the tanker, and no environmental threat.
