West Midlands Police Sergeant Hit By Car He Was Trying To Stop


A police sergeant was injured in Dudley after a car, which he was trying to stop, drove at him and then raced off.

The collision happened just before 3.30pm on Thursday in Wolverhampton Road as the officer attempted to stop a silver Volkswagen Golf on suspicion that the driver was involved in drugs offences.

The driver refused to stop and drove into the 40-year-old officer before driving away from the scene yesterday afternoon. He was taken to hospital with minor injuries to his hands and back and has since been discharged.

Detective Constable Pete Miller, from Force CID, said: “This was no accident and the driver knew exactly what he was doing as he collided with our officer and then drove away.¬†Fortunately he escaped with just minor injuries and is now recovering at home.”
