A Kentucky accident involving an off-duty Louisville Metro Police officer ends with the officer being sent to a nearby hospital and treated for injuries. The wreck took place at approximately 8:00 PM on Monday night, October 26, 2009.
The North Kentucky accident occurred at Taylorsville Road off Blankenbaker Lane when an unidentified man driving a white Ford F250 attempted to make a right turn onto Taylorsville Road. According to Louisville Metro Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell, the truck reportedly swerved in an attempt to avoid hitting a dog and went into oncoming traffic.
According to Mitchell, the Ford truck collided with an unmarked police car. The police car was driven by Officer Chris Hagan, who works in the 5th Division, at the time of the incident. Hagan was off-duty at the time the truck slammed into his police car.
Rescue workers transported Hagan to University Hospital. He was treated for a minor head injury and later released from the hospital.
There was no information provided as to whether the driver of the Ford F250 was treated for injuries or was sent to the hospital.
The North Kentucky accident is still under investigation by Louisville authorities. However, no charges have been filed as of yet.
