Kentucky State Police responded Saturday to an injury car wreck after a Lexington driver tried to overcorrect his vehicle.
The crash occurred at 5:58 a.m. on Bluegrass Parkway at Interstate-65 when Carlious Burton, 25, was westbound on Bluegrass Parkway in his Subaru Impreza and he attempted to exit off the parkway to northbound I-65, according to police.
Burton’s vehicle entered the right shoulder, and he overcorrected and entered the median between the exit ramp and the Bluegrass Parkway, according to police.
The vehicle flipped several times before coming to rest in the median, police said.
Burton walked from the scene to a Best Western motel and was transported to Hardin Memorial Hospital by Hardin County Emergency Medical Services. He was later transported to University Hospital in Louisville for serious injuries, according to police.
He was no longer at the hospital as of Monday morning.
