LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Just before the crash Kyle Prather remembered hearing a car horn.
"I tensed," he said. "I flinched away from it."
Thursday afternoon, Prather's vehicle was hit by a Louisville Metro Police Department cruiser at the corner of 26th and Madison streets.
The crash spun Prather's car around and sent both him and LMPD officer Timothy Likins to the hospital.
Prather was discharged and the officer is expected to be alright.
"Nothing's broken. Lots of bruising" Prather said. "I'm just glad everybody's OK."
Prather said the cruiser was about two blocks away when he entered the intersection after stopping at a stop sign.
