HAMILTON COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

A traffic accident involving a police cruiser stopped westbound traffic on the Norwood Lateral for two hours.

The accident happened on westbound 562 near 75 entrance, west of Paddock Road.

Police Specialist Jerry Enneking was driving westbound on the lateral, near the exit to I-75, when he slowed down due to heavy traffic in front of him.

That's when police say Roger Simon failed to stop on time and rear-ended Enneking, causing a chain reaction crash that ended with five vehicles damaged and Enneking and two others hurt.

Once Enneking determined he did not have life-threatening injuries, he called for assistance and medical aid for the other drivers involved.

Enneking, Simon and Yolonda Steele were taken to the hospital.  None of their injuries are life-threatening.

Police say alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in this crash.

All lanes were reopened to traffic just after noon.
