Policeman hospitalised and woman receives whiplash in crash

A County Durham car accident has left a traffic policeman in hospital with serious personal injury and the woman whose car hit him with whiplash.

The collision occurred when the police officer was directing traffic around the site of a previous car crash on Saturday. A 60-year-old woman in a Citroen Saxo lost control at the scene, when it swerved, clipped a hedge and span into the policeman. Colleagues thought that the officer's personal injury could have been fatal, but he has been described as recovering in hospital.

The man, 50, was due to retire this week and join his wife and family in the South of England. His wife said, "The force has handled the whole situation extremely well. I was at the other end of the country and they had difficulty in making initial contact, which was done very sensitively."

The woman in the Saxo had to be cut from the vehicle, which came to rest upside-down after the accident, and treated for whiplash injury.
