M40 Escape For Fail To Stop Audi Driver
7:50am 25th September 2013
Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following an incident in which a roads policing officer was driven at.
A silver Audi A4 failed to stop for a routine Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) check in Farnham Road, Slough, at just after 2pm yesterday (Tuesday 24th).
The car was driven at a Thames Valley roads policing officer, who was taking part in the joint operation. The officer managed to jump out the way of the vehicle, avoiding potentially serious injuries.
It then drove at high speed into Buckinghamshire and onto the M40 northbound, resulting in a short pursuit.
The police helicopter was brought into help trace the vehicle, but it is yet to be located and enquiries are ongoing.
Ch Insp Henry Parsons told Mix 96: "Thankfully the officer involved was uninjured but this was only due to his quick reactions.
I would appeal to anyone who saw a vehicle matching the description, or who knows its current whereabouts, to come forward."
If you can help, please call Thames Valley Police’s 24-hour Enquiry Centre via 101.
If you don't want to speak directly to the police you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at crimestoppers-uk.org. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court.
