(CNS): A police chase on Friday afternoon ended in a costly collision for the RCIPS when the officer driving the police car crashed into a parked cement truck. The RCIPS said that the vehicle was chasing a suspect following a reported hit and run in Sparky Drive, in the industrial area of George Town. The driver of the suspected car had refused to stop, regardless of the police lights and sirens. During the chase the police patrol car veered off the road and into the premises of National Concrete, where it crashed into the truck.

Needless to say, the police car came off the worst of the two vehicles. The officer driving the patrol vehicle received minor injuries and was taken to hospital, where he was treated and released.

Police said the report was received by the Police Unit, who responded to the hit and run at around 4:30pm but it is not clear how the car managed to hit the truck, which was parked on the private premises.
