A man has been left in hospital after a collision with a police car whilst he was trying to fix his car at the side of the road.

It happened early on Sunday morning at approximately 2.50am on the A1075 at Kilverstone just north of Thetford and police are appealing for a van driver to come forward.

The driver of a white or light coloured panel van, travelling in the direction of Watton on the A1075, was seen to flash their lights at the police vehicle involved just moments prior to the incident. The police vehicle was travelling in the opposite direction towards Thetford.

The male member of the public involved had broken down in a red Peugeot 205 and was standing outside the vehicle making repairs to it when he was in collision with the police vehicle.

The man was taken to hospital, where he still remains, for treatment to head and leg injuries.

Its thought that the marked police vehicle was not involved in an emergency response at the time of the incident.

The incident has been referred to Norfolk Constabulary’s Professional Standards Department and the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Any witnesses or anyone who has knowledge of the incident should contact Sgt Andy Spall at the Roads Policing Unit on 0845 4564567.
