First-responders used the jaws of life to free a Fulton County detention officer from a violent three-vehicle crash on Northside Drive early Monday morning.

Few details were publicly released by 8 a.m., but the crash did occur on Northside Drive, not far from Whitehall Street in southwest Atlanta.

The Fulton County Sheriff's Office says those involved in the crash that needed medical attention were transported to Grady Memorial Hospital.

The detention officer is reported to have suffered some type of leg injury, Atlanta police say. The name of the officer was not made public.

The Atlanta Police Department is investigating what caused the crash and if anyone will face charges regarding it.
