LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A crash at Broadway and Second Street Thursday night involved five vehicles, including a TARC bus and a police cruiser.

Investigators say the police officer was headed to another scene with lights and sirens when a car headed north on Second hit him and forced him into the bus and two other cars.

"The light turned green and I proceeded to go into the intersection and then out of the corner of my eye I saw the white car and I made a right to break and move out of his way, but it was too late," said Calvin Thompson, one of the drivers involved in the accident.

An ambulance took the officer involved in the crash to the hospital. A LMPD spokesperson said he had only minor injuries suffering some cuts to the face.
