LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- At least one LMPD officer is at University Hospital after an accident in downtown Louisville.

It happened just before 8:30 p.m. in the 900 block of 1st Street.

An officer was reportedly chasing a suspect on foot when he was hit by an officer in an unmarked car.

Police shut down several streets in downtown Louisville in order to get the victim to the hospital quickly.

LMPD spokesperson Alicia Smiley says the officer's injuries appear to be non-life-threatening.
