Officer injured after Basing View collision
AN ON-DUTY police officer was hit by a car he tried to stop in a Basingstoke business park.
The incident took place in the car park of Snamprogetti House, Basing View, at around 10.45pm on Friday, July 6.
Police said the officer, who has not been named, was patrolling the car park after reports of cars being driven erratically in Basing View.
As he approached a black Citroen Saxo parked in the car park, the female driver pulled off at speed and the car struck the officer in the knee.
The driver is described as white, aged between 17 and 23 years old, of slim build and had long hair. She had a female passenger of a similar description.
PC Chris Pike said: “The officer was in uniform and clearly walking toward this vehicle when it was driven off at speed. Fortunately the officer only received a minor injury as a result of this incident, but it could have been much worse.”
Anyone with information can contact PC Pike at Basingstoke police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
