LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two people were hospitalized after a crash early Thursday in southwestern Louisville.

It happened around 8:30 a.m. on Dixie Highway at Katherine Station Road. Police say the driver of a red Ford Edge was trying to turn left when it was hit from behind.

The impact pushed the SUV into the northbound lanes, causing it to hit a gold Chevy Suburban head on.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital, but are expected to be OK.

Police also responded to a second crash that happened in the backup.
