LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An LMPD officer is recovering after her police car was hit by an SUV.

The accident happened a little after 10 p.m. Tuesday on I-64 westbound, just past the Ninth Street exit.

An LMPD spokesperson says the officer was working traffic control for interstate maintenance.

Investigators say the driver of the SUV misjudged the distance to merge for the road work and rear ended the police car. Both the officer and the driver of the SUV were taken to University Hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.
