BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — Police have released dash cam video of the crash on Interstate 65 that involved a Brentwood officer.

The head-on collision happened Thursday morning near Moores Lane.

Officer Cliff Thompson was trying to stop a wrong-way driver when he ran his car into hers to get her to stop.

Police say Thompson’s decision likely prevented the other drivers stopped on I-65 from getting hurt.

Both the driver, Sandra Sharp, and the officer were injured but have since been treated and released.

Police say they are waiting until the investigation is over before any charges are filed.
