Two police officers suffer injuries after car crash in Arlesey
TWO police officers have suffered injuries after the car they were travelling in was involved in a collision.
The incident happened in High Street, Arlesey, last Monday at around 8pm when a marked Hertfordshire Police vehicle was in collision with a dark grey Rover 25 which then sped off towards Ickleford.
A member of the public directed officers towards Cricketers Road, where the vehicle had travelled, and they were then directed towards St Johns Road where the car and the driver were located.

Both officers in the police vehicle suffered minor injuries and the car itself was removed from the road.
