Four in hospital after police car rammed

POLICE are investigating two traffic crashes involving police vehicles that occurred last night.

The first incident occurred when police patrolling for a stolen vehicle around 8.50pm in an industrial area near Campbell Avenue in Wacol when the vehicle was sighted.

The stolen vehicle has then driven at a police dog squad vehicle and collided with the front of it before driving off.

The officer and police dog weren't injured as a result of the crash, and the stolen vehicle was located a short time later abandoned on McRoyle Street.

Other police units responding to reports that a police car had been rammed were driving along Progress Road with their lights and sirens activated around 9pm and have collided with another vehicle.

A male Constable, a male Senior Constable and two males in the other vehicle were all taken to hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening neck and back injuries.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating, and investigations into locating the suspect in the stolen vehicle are continuing.

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or 24hrs a day.
