A police officer was taken to hospital suffering from neck and arm injuries in the early hours of Sunday morning, 20th January, following a collision in the Odd Down area of Bath.
Shortly after 12.10am on Sunday morning, police officers attempted to stop a blue Renault Laguna on Mount Road in Bath.
The Renault Laguna subsequently made off from the scene, having collided with the police car, causing minor damage.
While the police officers continued to pursue the vehicle, they were involved in a collision with a member of the public’s car at the junction of Frome Road and Bloomfield Road.
Firefighters from Bath’s fire station were sent to the scene to help rescue the police officer, along with paramedics.
