Investigation under way after crash in Bromsgrove involving police car on blue lights and sirens

AN INVESTIGATION is under way after a crash in Bromsgrove which involved a vehicle and a police car on blue lights and sirens that was responding to a 999 call from Rubery.

It happened around 10.10pm on the A38 in Bromsgrove, near the junction with the Old Birmingham Road.

Five people were hurt in the collision.

The two officers were treated by paramedics for minor injuries and were then taken to hospital.

In the other car there were three people – one man was treated for injuries and taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for further treatment.

A woman in the same car was treated for less serious injuries and also taken to the QE.

A third was treated for minor injuries and taken to the Worcestershire Royal.

All have since been discharged.

The road was closed for some time while investigation work was carried out and the damaged vehicles removed.

Ch Insp Helen Kinrade said the incident was reported to the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC) – as was normal practice when police were involved in a collision – and she confirmed an investigation was under way.
