FOUR police officers were injured when two police cars collided during a high-speed pursuit.
The vehicles, one a Brent Police response patrol car and the other carrying members of the Metropolitan Police’s armed response unit, crashed in Blackbird Hill, Kilburn, on Wednesday last week, at 12.50am.
Firefighters had to cut a female officer, who had suffered head injuries, out of the area response car and free a male officer, who sustained neck injuries, from the armed response car.
A Met Police spokeswoman said: “We haven’t got an update on their condition but in all likelihood they weren’t suffering serious injuries so have been released.
“They were in pursuit of a motorcyclist who was allegedly seen disposing of drugs.
“That suspect was subsequently arrested by other officers.”
The other officer in the area response car and the two in the armed response unit did not require treatment.
A spokeswoman for the London Ambulance Service said they sent four ambulance crews to the scene and staff treated four patients, who were all taken to St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, west London.
She said they included a man in his 30s with neck and back pain and a woman in her 20s with a minor head injury.
The incident is being investigated by the Met Police’s Police Driving Standards Unit.
There has been no referral to the Independent Police Complaints Commission or the force’s Directorate of Professional Standards.
