Lancashire Constabulary has made an appeal to the public for dashcam footage after a police vehicle was rammed off of the motorway during a high-speed pursuit of a stolen car.
The incident happened at the end of the M55 heading into Blackpool at around 12.55 hours on September 19th after a stolen black Range Rover failed to stop for the police.
After ramming two police cars, the stolen car continued into Blackpool. Thankfully, no police officers were seriously injured during the incident.
The Range Rover was seen by members of the public as it was being driven dangerously both on the M55 eastbound carriageway and further continuing onto progress way.
Officers later found the stolen car after it was abandoned. No arrests have yet been made.
PC Andrew Sidgreaves, of Lancashire Police’s Tactical Operations, said:
“This will have been a terrifying time for members of the public who witnessed this, and it is extremely fortunate that an officer was not more seriously injured.
“Our enquiries are very much ongoing and we are now asking for the public’s help identifying the driver involved.
Anyone with information or footage is asked to email PC Sidgreaves at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 101, quoting log 0591 of September 19th, 2020.
