LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville Metro police officer was taken to a hospital for treatment

MetroSafe says the accident was reported at 3;15 p.m. at Bardstown Road and Fegenbush Lane and involved six vehicles.

According to LMPD spokesman Dwight Mitchell, the police car was heading south on Bardstown Road when it hit a car turning left from Fegenbush Lane onto northbound Bardstown Road. That collision caused a chain reaction.

The officer was taken to University of Louisville Hospital with a leg injury. She was the only person transported from the scene.
