Police car roof removed for crash victim's safety

 


A car accident near Coventry had an expensive result for the policemen who let an apparently uninjured woman sit in their patrol car.

According to the Mirror, the officers attended a road traffic accident on the M6, where a woman had left her damaged car and climbed the embankment. As it began to rain, she was offered the opportunity of sitting in their Volvo patrol car, but once the emergency services arrived she mentioned back pain, and medics - fearing whiplash, or worse - insisted that she should be immobilised before being moved - which meant the roof of the car had to be removed.

A source within the fire service said "The cops were speechless. They got a lift to the station and their car was towed off."

An unamused head of traffic police said the vehicle was being repaired. The woman involved in the car accident was taken to hospital, where scans showed she had suffered no serious personal injury.
