2 Louisville police officers hurt after suspect in traffic stop sparks chase in Valley Station


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — A Louisville Metro Police officer was dragged by a car during a traffic stop Tuesday afternoon in Valley Station.

LMPD spokesman Aaron Ellis said an officer was conducting a traffic stop around 1 p.m. Tuesday on Lower River Road, just inside the Greenbelt Highway at Moorewick Way.

Police said officers were responding to the suspicion of a stolen vehicle involved in a domestic incident when the driver sped off, dragging the officer and causing him to fall down.

Ellis said a short chase ended when the suspect hit a marked cruiser.

Two LMPD officers were transported to University of Louisville Hospital with “minor” injuries. LMPD’s 3rd Division and the Domestic Violence Unit are handling the investigation.
