Investigation launched after officer sustained whiplash

An investigation will be carried out into a car accident that left one policeman in hospital suffering from whiplash injuries.

The car crash occurred in Radford, Coventry, when a police car reportedly crashed into a vehicle after passing through the junction of Lydgate Road and Radford Road.

The driver of the police car escaped sustaining personal injuries in the road traffic accident but a passenger, another officer, was taken to hospital with a trapped nerve and whiplash.

An investigation will now be launched by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) to discover why the car accident occurred.

Commissioner of the IPCC said, "Having reviewed the available evidence, I have decided that the IPCC should manage an investigation to establish all of the circumstances of this accident."

It is not believed that anybody travelling in the other vehicle suffered neck injuries in the crash and so no whiplash compensation claim is expected to be made.
