1 Mins read

A 24 year old man has been arrested following a two vehicle rtc that occurred on the Caw roundabout in Derry/Londonderry just before 12.30pm on Friday 5 February.

A grey Skoda Superb was stolen in a creeper burglary in the Lindenwood Park area in the early hours of the morning. This car was later spotted by police just before 12.20pm. A police pursuit was in place when the stolen car was involved in a collision with another car. It is not believed that anyone was seriously injured in this collision, however two police officers who were on foot were injured in their attempts to get out of the way when the stolen car drove at them. Another officer was injured when making the arrest. None are believed to have received any serious injuries.

Detective Inspector Conor McStravick said: “The 24 year old man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary, two counts of attempted murder of police officers, breach of bail and various road traffic offences. He is currently assisting police with their enquiries.

“I would appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the Skoda Superb in the area at the time or who may have witnessed the rtc to contact detectives at Strand Road Police Station on the non emergency number 101. Or if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details, they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

The Caw roundabout remains closed at this time.
