Police are trying to trace a driver who drove into a police officer during a routine check in Slough.

A silver Audi A4 failed to stop during vehicle checks in Farnham Road, Slough, just after 2pm on Wednesday 24th september 2013.

The car was driven at a Thames Valley roads policing officer, who was taking part in the joint operation. The officer managed to jump out the way, avoiding potentially serious injuries.

It then drove at high speed into Buckinghamshire and onto the M40 northbound, resulting in a short pursuit involving the police helicopter, but it is yet to be located.

Ch Insp Henry Parsons said: “Thankfully the officer involved was uninjured but this was only due to his quick reactions.

“I would appeal to anyone who saw a vehicle matching the description, or who knows its current whereabouts, to come forward.”

If you can help, please call Thames Valley Police’s 24-hour Enquiry Centre via 101.
