Pedestrian injured by police car in Cardiff

A 67-year-old woman has sustained serious personal injury after being involved in a road traffic accident with a police vehicle.

The woman had been crossing a road in Rumney, Cardiff when she was run over by a marked police car as it made a turn out of a side road and onto the dual carriageway.

The police officers in the car had been responding to an emergency call when they performed the U-turn to drive back out onto the main road, hitting the woman as she crossed in front of them.

The woman was admitted to the University Hospital of Wales as a result of the incident.

Road safety campaigners stated that the local council and police have been warned of the dangers of the junction and have been fighting for speed cameras to be installed.

South Wales Police has claimed that the officers were not speeding at the time of the road traffic accident but said the incident is being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).
