A car accident that involved a member of the Louisville Metropolitan Police Department and a civilian citizen caused two people to be sent to a medical facility. The two-vehicle collision happened at 34th Street and Greenwood Avenue shortly after 5 p.m. on Wednesday, January 8.
According to an LMPD spokeswoman, the police officer was chasing robbery suspects driving a stolen vehicle when he got into an accident with the blue Jeep.
A witness to the whole incident, identified as Zorina Wallace, said the police cruiser had its lights and sirens on but that the Jeep had the green light.
The driver of the Jeep, an unidentified man, and his female passenger, were both transported to the University Hospital to seek treatment for their non-life-threatening wounds. Airbags deployed in both vehicles.
