LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville Metro Police officer and an unidentified driver were injured in a two-vehicle traffic accident Thursday afternoon.

According to Sgt. John Bradley, spokesman for LMPD, the crash took place at 4:15 p.m., near the corner of S. 26th Street and W. Madison Street.

Bradley said a 1st Division LMPD officer was responding to a report of a break-in in progress. That officer was driving southbound on S. 26th Street when the officer's vehicle was involved in a collision with another vehicle heading eastbound on W. Madison Street.

Both the officer and the driver of the other vehicle sustain "non-life-threatening, moderate injuries," according to Bradley. He said both individuals were taken to University Hospital.

"We expect full recovery, at least at this point," Bradley said.

Chief Steve Conrad was seen at the hospital.

Bradley said he did not believe the officer's lights and sirens were activated at the time of the crash. 

He said the LMPD Traffic Unit is investigating.

Police are not releasing the officer's name at this time and are not saying which vehicle caused the crash.
