An 18-year-old girl from Lexington has been killed in a tragic accident in Fayette County. It all started when authorities tried to pull over a Toyota Camry around 11:30 at night. The Camry was showing up in the system as stolen, so they pulled the driver over, but vehicle sped away and they decided not to chase it. Just a few minutes later, an officer reported seeing a car going the wrong way down the road, and around 10 minutes later, officials started receiving calls of an accident.
The driver of the Camry collided with a white pickup truck and then was hit by another vehicle. The 18-year-old girl who was killed was riding in the passenger seat of the Camry. Several others were injured and had to be transported to the hospital, including one other passenger riding in the Camry. Police say that the driver of the allegedly stolen Camry was 16 years old and did not seem to be licensed. He has been charged with murder, assault 2nd degree and receiving stolen property.
