LMPD reports crash between a taxi driver and an off-duty LMPD officer, near the intersection of Taylor Boulevard and Heywood Avenue.
A Louisville Metro Police Department spokesperson stated that the accident happened when an unmarked police cruiser made a left turn at the 2900 block of Taylor Boulevard. An oncoming taxi driver struck the cruiser at the intersection causing both drivers to sustain injuries.
As a result of the accident, the left side of the police vehicle was severely damaged. The collision also caused severe damage to the front end of the taxi.
The taxi driver reportedly sustained severe injuries to the back, neck and hip areas from the accident. LMPD has not released the condition of the officer involved in the crash only stating that the officer suffered minor injuries. First responders transported him to Audubon Hospital.
LMPD has not released the identities of the drivers and are still investigating the cause of the crash.
Dr. Brian Elias, from the Accident and Injury Team, commented on the crash. “As drivers we must always obey the rules of the road and practice defensive driving. We hope the victims’ injuries are not life-threatening and we wish both victims a speedy recovery from the crash. We hope investigators can quickly determine the cause of the collision and would like to remind the public that injuries to the back, neck and hip can be severely debilitating. These injuries don’t always seem obvious immediately after an accident and can become progressively worse as time goes on. Please seek medical attention as soon as possible after an accident.”
