There was a car chase over a distance of 70 km along the Costa Tropical which ended with the police car coming to grief in Motril.
The chase began in Vélez-Málaga on the N-340 when a car sped by a police check point without stopping, so the patrol car abandoned the check point and set off in pursuit.
It was when the chase reached the roundabout at Kilómetro Uno in Motril that the Policía Nacional patrol car was involved in a collision, which, although it destroyed the front of the car, did not cause any injuries to the occupants.
The police are investigating the ownership of the car to track down the culprit.
