LEXINGTON, Ky. — A Lexington man was charged with murder in the hit-and-run death of a Lexington police officer Thursday evening.
Police said a sport utility vehicle driven by Glenn R. Doneghy, 33, struck officer Bryan J. Durman, who had been responding to a noise complaint about 10 p.m. on North Limestone near Alabama Street.
Investigators said Durman, 27, had parked his cruiser and walked back to a vehicle that had reportedly been "playing music loudly." That vehicle was parked on the left side of the road. While Durman was talking to a passenger on the right side of the vehicle, a Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Doneghy, traveling north on Limestone, struck Durman, the parked vehicle and another vehicle that was in front of it, police said. The Tahoe slowed, then sped off. Police said the vehicle went north on Limestone and turned left onto Seventh Street.
