A police officer's been badly injured in Milton Keynes after being struck by a suspected getaway car from a nearby burglary.
Officers were responding to a report of a burglary in progress at around 7.25pm last night (Saturday 3rd November) on Belsize Avenue, Springfield; but when police arrived at the scene, the offenders made off in a car, believed to be a black Audi S3.
That car was then involved in a collision with a police officer nearby on Beverley Place.
The collision left the officer with serious but non-life-threatening injuries to her leg.
She was taken to Milton Keynes University Hospital and then transferred to John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.
There's been no arrests so far.
Ongoing support is being given to the injured officer and her family.
Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Superintendent Justin Fletcher, said:
"We are at the early stages of this investigation in which a police officer suffered a serious injury.
We would ask anyone who has seen the vehicle, which we believe to be an Audi S3, travelling along Belsize Avenue or Beverley Place, in Springfield, Milton Keynes this evening (3/11) or witnessed the collision to come forward and speak to police.
Additionally, if any motorists have any dash-cam footage we would urge them to get in touch with us."
Anyone with information is asked to call 101 quoting URN 1250 3/11. Reports can also be made on the Thames Valley Police website.
