Two Metropolitan Police cars were involved in a four-vehicle collision during an operation in St Albans, at about 5pm yesterday (Wednesday).
A spokeswoman for Herts Police said that the collision occurred in Bluehouse Hill (A4147) and that one person – not an officer – was slightly injured and went to hospital as a precaution.
While details of the incident are sketchy, a press officer for the Met Police said the collision occurred during an operation, but she could not confirm whether it was while officers were in pursuit of a vehicle in the area.
She said the Met’s Collision Investigation Unit is looking into the crash.
A passing motorist told the Herts Advertiser: “I saw a lady with a dog, which was being put in the back of an unmarked police car. Police were going from the scene with blue lights going.
