This is the shocking moment an unruly driver deliberately reversed and rammed into a police patrol car on a busy road in Bradford.
West Yorkshire Police is currently trying to trace the Mitsubishi Shogun driver who smashed into the vehicle twice on Monday afternoon.
The incident began when officers tried to pull the driver over on Otley Road.
The force of the impact pushed the police vehicle to collide with a white Renault Traffic, causing extensive damage.
Sgt Penny Robinson of the Western Safer Road and Neighbourhood Policing said: “Fortunately, on this occasion, no one was injured however, the actions of those in the Mitsubishi could have easily caused a more serious collision and caused injury to a number of other road users.
“This has caused significant damage to the police vehicle and has meant that a valuable resource for protecting the public has been taken off the road.
Anybody with information about the incident is asked to contact police via 101 quoting 1153 of Aug 21.
