Police car crashes en route to emergency call
A POLICE car crashed into another vehicle this evening while responding to an emergency, leaving a police officer with minor injuries.
The police vehicle had its blue lights flashing and was en route to another incident when it collided at around 5.50pm with a car travelling in the same direction along Southgate Street in Bury St Edmunds, at the junction with Sextons Meadow.
An ambulance was on the scene for about 40 minutes to treat the officer, who did not need to go to hospital. The passengers in the other vehicle were not hurt.
There was some damage to nearby railings but the vehicles were recovered and the road reopened shortly afterwards.
Inspector Rose of Suffolk Police headquarters said: “As with all collisions, we are investigating the circumstances around it and obviously if anyone was in the area and witnessed it, they can contact us.”
