PSNI officers injured after police vehicle rammed
Three Police Service of Northern Ireland officers were injured when their patrol car was rammed in the New Lodge area of north Belfast in the early hours of Friday morning (April 17).
The incident occurred at around 3am when a silver Audi A4 reversed into the police vehicle at the junction of Lepper Street and Spamount Street, pushing it across the road.
The Audi then left the area, heading towards the Limestone Road where it stopped.
Two men, aged 29 and 32, were arrested a short time later on suspicion of dangerous driving and charges linked to failing to stop at the scene of an accident. They remain in custody.
The three officers sustained whiplash-type injuries during the incident and the damage to the police vehicle required it to be taken off the road for repairs.
