Officer involved in accident at I-240, Perkins

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Traffic along I-240 was slowed early Thursday morning following a two-car crash involving a Memphis police officer.

It happened in the westbound lanes near the Perkins exit around 8:45 a.m.

According to initial information, a black car struck the back of a Memphis police cruiser in the far left lane. Both drivers were taken to the hospital, but authorities said they are expected to be okay.

The arrival of first responders closed an additional two lanes on the far left side, causing traffic to pile up all the way back to Bill Morris Parkway.
