Update Oct.28: Police statement
Around 8pm on Thursday October 27th, Police responded to a report of a two vehicle collision on Somerset Road in Sandys near the junction with Gilbert Lane.
It appears that a private car was travelling on Somerset Road and a marked police car was travelling on the same road responding to an incident with its emergency equipment activated when the vehicles collided.
As a result, the police car also collided with the wall of a nearby property. The officer driving the police vehicle was not injured and the driver of the private car, a 31 year old Sandys man sustained relatively minor injuries and was assessed at the scene by EMTs.
Inquiries into this incident are underway.
