Metrosafe: LMPD cruiser struck while blocking scene of earlier accident

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Emergency crews are responding after an LMPD officer was involved in a wreck in southwest Louisville.

Metrosafe confirms the call came in at 7:55 p.m., of an officer-involved wreck at Dixie Highway and the Greenbelt Highway.

Once on scene, crews determined the LMPD cruiser that was struck had been blocking the scene for an investigation of a deadly accident that happened earlier Tuesday.

Metrosafe advises the other vehicle involved in the collision drove up to the previous accident scene where police were blocking the road, and struck a police cruiser.

The driver of that passenger vehicle was reportedly injured. The officer was not injured.
