LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A car runs a stop sign, crashing into a Fayette County
constable’s car, injuring him, and then leaves the scene.
According to authorities, First District Deputy Constable Danny Prater was hurt just after 9 p.m. Tuesday when a green Dodge Dakota pickup went through the four-way intersection at Alexandria and Devonport, hitting Prater’s car in the passenger side, according to District 1 Constable Wade McNabb.
Prater had the right-of-way, McNabb said.
