Three police officers from Merseyside Police were injured this morning after the police vehicle they were travelling in collided with a Range Rover.
Two of the injured police officers required treatment in hospital, but have since been discharged from A&E.
A third police officer and a prisoner who was in the police van received minor injuries which did not require any treatment.
Three women and a child who were in the Range Rover that collided with the police unit were uninjured.
The incident happened at around 10:10 this morning at the junction of Great Homer Street and Wilbraham Street.
Road closures are still in place as officers from Merseyside Police’s Matrix Roads Policing team continue to investigate the cause of the collision.
It is not known if the police vehicle was on a ‘blue-light’ run at the time of the collision.
Officers have urged anyone who witnessed this collision or anyone who has any dashcam footage to DM @MerPolCC or call 101 quoting reference 335 of 13.08.19.
