Police Car Rammed

MOT Police Car RammedThree Guardia Civil officers were injured when the driver of a stolen van rammed a patrol car. One of them was seriously injured and medevacked by helicopter.

The vehicle, which had been stolen, loaded with goods earlier on Monday in Motril, was intercepted on the westbound lanes of the A-7 where it passes through the municipality of Vélez.

It was during the chase that the van rammed the patrol car with two trainees and a senior policeman inside.

The patrol car had swerved in front and began to brake to force the thief to slow down but instead he accelerated and rammed into the back of the police car.

The 4×4 patrol car rolled over several times, tumbling across the central reservation and ending up on the oncoming lanes. The van driver also lost control of the vehicle and tipped over on the inside, hard shoulder

As for the injured parties, the two, young, trainee policemen come out of it with slight injuries whilst the older policeman had to be medevacked to Hospital Carlos Haya in Málaga. The van driver, who was immediately arrested, was only slightly hurt.

    José: Because these details have not been officially released. We cannot published unconfirmed details. Had the Guardia Civil released that information, it would be a different matter. We don’t know how Mr O’connor knows this nor do we distrust his information, which is why his comment was approved to appear in the comments box.

    Why does the article written (Police Car Rammed) not include the facts/details provided by the commentator John O’Connor?

    Brexit might just have an advantage, this guy can be deported and banned from Spain.
    The thief is a 28 year old Brit with a string of convictions and no drivers licence
