Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Three people, including one Louisville Metro Police officer, were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries Thursday night, according to police.

A supervisor at the scene said one officer made a traffic stop behind the Thoroughbred Lounge at Seventh Street and Berry Boulevard. When the officer approached the vehicle about 10:30 p.m., it sped off and ran into another police car on its way to offer back up, according to police.

That’s when the driver sped off again and hit another car, police say.

None of the injuries are expected to be serious injuries, but the police officer who was hit in a police car was taken to the hospital along with the suspect and another driver.

Police are still investigating the accident.
