A police officer has been hurt after his vehicle was rammed off of the road by a speeding motorist who refused to stop for the officer.
The incident happened yesterday evening (25th April) as the unknown driver of the BMW sped down the M22 near Randalstown, Northern Ireland.
The Roads Policing Unit from Steeple, attempted to try and stop the driver of the BMW after the vehicle was spotted being driven at excess speed.
However, the driver of the BMW refused to stop when indicated to do so and rammed the police vehicle off of the road.
The police vehicle ended up colliding with a street light that narrowly avoided landing on top of the patrol vehicle.
The police officer suffered only minor injuries and was taken to hospital where he was discharged a short time later.
The BMW was abandoned further along the road, and the driver made off, on foot, across some fields.
If anyone has any dashcam of this BMW or incident, please contact the Northern Ireland Police Service using incident number 1486 on 25/4/2020.
