According to Louisville Metro Police spokesperson Dwight Mitchell, the unidentified Louisville Metro Police officer, was off-duty at the time the accident took place.

Rescue crews transported the second division officer to University Hospital where he was treated for injuries sustained in the accident. He apparently suffered a mild concussion; however, his injuries did not appear to be all that serious, according to Mitchell.
The driver of the second vehicle was not reported as suffering any injuries in the crash. His identity has not been made available.
There were no other injuries reported.
The Louisville accident is still under investigation by local authorities. No other details concerning the accident were made available, including the cause of the accident.
