Police car hit - West Oxfordshire

Police are appealing for witnesses after a police car was rammed off the road by a car that then drove off in West Oxfordshire.

The Vauxhall Astra panda car contained two male officers, who were just finishing their tour of duty early Sunday morning (1/10) and were making their way back to the station.

They were travelling along Monnhan Way, Carterton, at 50pmh when a small white car, possibly a Vauxhall Nova or a Renault Clio, approached the panda from the opposite direction. It deliberately crossed onto the opposing carriageway and collided with the rear of the panda before driving away.

The officers suffered minor injuries but were in work for their duty at 4pm yesterday (01/10). The police car had to be recovered.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or who knows of a small white vehicle with damage are urged to contact police via 08 45 8 505 505 or the Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.

You can also give information to the police in person by visiting any police station. To find out the opening times and location of your local station please call 0845 8 505 505
