The Family of PC Jon Casey, the officer seriously injured in a hit-and-run incident on Monday 6th January at around 00:10 hours on Chigwell Road IG8, have released an image of him as he recovers in hospital from his serious injuries.
At about 00:10hrs on Monday, 6 January officers indicated for a grey Mini Cooper to stop in Chigwell Hill, near Saint Barnabus Road, E18.
It failed to do so and a pursuit was authorised.
Officers positioned themselves on Chigwell Road, IG8, near Gaynes Hill Road and the M11 overpass, in wait of the vehicle.
The vehicle that is believed to have struck PC Casey
As the vehicle approached, PC Casey attempted to deploy a Stop Stick (stinger) when he was struck by the car. The vehicle then sped away from the scene leaving the seriously injured officer on the floor.
The vehicle that struck PC Casey was located a short time later at about 00:45hrs abandoned in Woolhampton Way, Chigwell. The vehicle was on false ‘67’ year plates.
In a post shared on social media, Donna Casey said:
