No arrest after possible sighting of car that rammed police

UPDATE 5pm: A SPOKESPERSON from the Rockhampton Police Service said the "possible sighting" could not be confirmed as correct at the time so it was not investigated further.

Investigations are continuing into the original incident.
 

UPDATE 1.20pm: REPORTS suggest the car being followed by police was a suspect vehicle regarding a wanted person following an incident yesterday where a police vehicle was rammed.

The officer was attending a Painswick St address and pulled up in the driveway, when a vehicle there then reversed at speed hitting the police car and pushing it side-ways before speeding off.

While the officer was not injured, the police car was disabled after the collision after the front passenger side of the vehicle sustained "moderate" damage.

It is not believed the vehicle or persons involved committed any further offences today.

BREAKING 12.20pm: A CAR that evaded police yesterday is being followed by multiple police units in Rockhampton.

The car is currently traveling on Elphinstone St with one female and two male passengers.

It is believed officers have been warned not to chase after the passengers on foot, as one of the men may be armed.

Four police cars are reportedly attending the job.
