A ‘fatigued’ driver crashed into a police car which was helping with the recovery of a vehicle on the A11.

The collision took place on the southbound carriageway at Elveden at 4.30pm when the marked police vehicle, which had its blue lights on, was helping with the recovery of a vehicle involved in an earlier collision.

The driver who hit the police car then drove off but the vehicle was later stopped by other officers at Red Lodge.

The police car had minor damage but no-one was injured as the officer was out of the vehicle at the time of the crash.

Police said during an interview with the driver, he told officers he was feeling fatigued after a long weekend and didn’t see the police vehicle until it was too late. He said he panicked and drove off.

The driver has been reported for consideration of offences including careless driving.
