Four pedestrians were injured after being struck by a vehicle which had failed to stop for police in Cambridge.

Officers had attempted to stop a blue Fiat Punto in Hills Road at 11.52pm yesterday (Thursday), however the driver made off. The vehicle left the road a short distance later, at its junction with Station Road, mounting the pavement and colliding with a group of people.

The vehicle was not being pursued by police at the time of the collision.

Three boys, all aged 17, suffered serious, but not life-threatening, injuries and were taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital for treatment. A teenage girl was also injured.

The occupants of the Punto made off from the scene on foot.

A 43-year-old man from Cambridge has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and is currently in custody at Parkside Police Station.

Enquiries are ongoing to trace any other occupants of the vehicle.

The incident has been referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
