Semi, police cruiser collide on Kennedy

Posted: Updated:

A semi-truck and police cruiser collided Thursday morning on Kennedy Boulevard, causing delays.

Officials tell us the officer was treated for minor injuries and taken to the hospital, and the HAZMAT teams were at the scene because fuel had spilled into the road. 

Both directions of Kennedy were closed between Dale Mabry and Grady Avenue, but police have since reopened the lanes.

Police say the 18-wheeler tried to make a U-turn and did not see the police car coming.
