A young girl who was flown to hospital after a crash involving a police car on Wednesday is reportedly due to have surgery on a broken eye socket.

The girl, one of four people taken to hospital following the collision on Stevenage’s Six Hills Way, was airlifted to Royal London Hospital and is said to have come out of an induced coma.

The others were taken to Lister Hospital in the town, with a passenger of the Citroen C3 which collided with the police car reportedly suffering a broken foot and hand, as well as heavy bruising and cuts.

The police car had been responding to an emergency at the time of the crash – which took place at about 11.40am – and the Independent Police Complaints Commission are now investigating the incident.
