A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving after he crashed into the back of a police car.

The 42-year-old was driving along the A34 when his Vauxhall Polo struck the BMW police car from behind, at around 2.41pm yesterday afternoon.

The police car was parked up, protecting a Ford Ranger which had less than an hour earlier crashed into the central reservation barrier of the southbound carriageway at Wash Water.

Anyone with information about the two collisions should contact Whitchurch Roads Policing Unit or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
