COP CAR COLLISION

A 21-YEAR-OLD pedestrian was taken to hospital after being involved in a collision with a police car.

The incident happened at around 2.55am on Saturday in Anson Street, Barrow.

The man, of Barrow, was taken to Furness General Hospital where he underwent an operation for a fractured ankle later that day.

A police spokesman said yesterday that the casualty was still in hospital on Saturday evening and was in a comfortable condition.

The spokesman said the matter was still under investigation.

Inspector Chris Wright of Cumbria Police said on Saturday: “It is still being investigated. The lad is at hospital being treated. We don’t know the extent of his leg injuries at this time but they are not life-threatening.

“The incident occurred on Anson Street and the pedestrian appears to have collided with the police vehicle. We need to ascertain where people were when the incident occurred.

“We are also speaking to potential witnesses in the Barrow area.

“The police vehicle was not responding to an incident and he wasn’t flying down the road with all guns blazing.”
