Just a day after a traffic police officer tragically lost his life in an accident while on duty, another two police officers were taken to hospital after an accident following a car chase with a vehicle that evaded a road block. The accident happened in the early hours of Friday morning.
The man driving the car, a 43 year old man whose name was not released by the police, was stopped at a road block along Mackenzie Road, but he had refused to comply with a police officer's instructions. He subsequently sped off and in the ensuing pursuit, the police car and the man's car was involved in an accident at Normanton Road. This resulted in the police car smashed into a flight of stairs. Two officers were taken to NUH, but it is understood that their injuries are minor.
