    A POLICE car has been involved in a serious road traffic accident at the junction of Hillside Road and Sandon Road in Hillside, Southport. The accident happened at about 10:30am this morning (Tuesday 17th April 2012).



    Eyewitness reports suggest that the Hyundai i30 car was travelling on the wrong side of Waterloo Road, heading towards Southport town centre with its emergency lights on just before the accident happened.



    It crossed a zebra crossing then allegedly hit the kerb before crashing into a parked BMW.



    The impact forced the parked BMW to hit the rear of another parked car.



    An investigation is underway into the cause of the accident.

    There were no serious injuries involved.

    UPDATE POLICE STATEMENT 2:00pm

    POLICE VEHICLE COLLISION - HILLSIDE ROAD, BIRKDALE

    Merseyside Police can confirm that a police car has been involved in a road traffic collision in the Southport area this morning (Tuesday, April 17).

    The marked patrol car was responding to a grade one 999 call in the Birkdale area when it collided with a grey BMW, which was parked in Hillside Road.

    The collision then caused the BMW to collide with two other cars - a blue VW Polo and a silver Toyota - which were also parked.

    The two officers (a male PC and a female PC) in the police car suffered minor whiplash injuries and were taken to hospital in Southport as a precaution before being discharged.

    No-one else was injured during the incident and an investigation into the cause of the collision, which happened at 10.15am, is now underway.

    There were no serious injuries involved
    So which was it? The usual high 'standards' of reporting, I see...

    I hope all involved are ok, and get themselves sorted as soon as possible.

    *awaits the usual ranting against the police*

    Hope the copper involved is ok, but seriously what type of performance/ handling do they expect from a Hyundai? Very much doubt this type of accident would happen with one of the "better" cars.

    wondering when a hyundai police car would be crashed

    nothing to do with this incident, but a colleague saw a bobby texting at the wheel as she drove through town recently

    Hope the driver is O.K., looks quite an impact.

    Maybe the Police Car was trying to avoid the car which nearly pulled out infront of it at the junction.

    The policeman and policewomen passenger both walked away from the Hyundia which was lucky, looked like no airbags were deployed in the Hyundia though.

    It was also very lucky that it was not 3.30pm as this junction is crawling with school kids on bycycles.

    I would hope the driver was able to control whatever vehicle they are driving.No good blaming the vehicles handling performance for what could turn out to be poor driving.
    They are supposed to be able to drive within the vehicles limitations.

    As you don't have a clue about what actually happened - or probably anyone else for that matter at present - wouldn't it be better not to make generalised statements merely because of an opportunity to do so?

    Have you ever driven a Hyundai i30?
    What would you class is a 'better' car?
