Hales: Renewed Appeal After Officer Injured

One month after a police officer was injured in a hit-and-run in Norfolk a renewed appeal for witnesses has been issued.

In the early hours of Tuesday 23 July 2013, emergency services were at the scene of a crash in Hales.

The A146 Beccles Road was blocked, close to the junction with Church Lane, to allow a safe working environment for the treatment of injured people and the subsequent investigation and recovery of the vehicles. 

At around 12.15am, an officer who was dealing with the recovery of the vehicles, was approached by a silver or grey Landrover Discovery towing a trailer. It had driven round a stationary police vehicle which had its blue warning lights on and was parked over both lanes of the carriageway and onto the verge.

The driver spoke to the officer explaining he would have to turn around, but he accelerated through the scene, knocking her to the ground and dragging her with the vehicle for some distance. The car then drove off towards Beccles.

The officer received injuries to her arm and leg as a result of the incident with some bruising still evident a month on.

The driver is described as white, in his late 40s, of medium build with very short hair and was wearing a red striped shirt.

Sergeant Matt Price, Acle Road Policing, would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this incident or has information about the Landrover.  Sgt Price can be contacted on 101.
