Aug. 31--A woman driving on West Loudon Avenue early Monday hit a light pole and a pedestrian, and crashed into a Rite Aid store.
The woman ran off, but the car's owner, who was in the passenger seat, stayed behind to talk to police, Sgt. Ann Welch said.
The car's owner didn't know the woman's name, but he said he had allowed her to drive the car after she asked him to pick up a few items, Welch said. They had both been at the house of the car owner's friend.
A pedestrian was hit by the side mirror of the car after it hit the light pole, Welch said. He wasn't seriously injured, but he was taken to a hospital with some pain.
Kentucky Utilities was called to fix the light pole, Welch said. The Rite Aid had to close for a Lexington fire marshal to inspect the building.
Police were searching for the woman, Welch said.
