[Updated] Shortly before 2:00pm yesterday [Feb.19], emergency service personnel responded to a report of an accident in the Parsons Lane area.

The accident involved a private car and a police car. It appears the two vehicles were travelling in opposite directions when the collision occurred.

It is understood that one person was taken to King Edward Memorial Hospital by ambulance for treatment to what is unofficially reported to be minor injuries.

Police closed off the road until investigators processed the scene and a tow truck came to take the damaged vehicles.

Update: A police spokesperson said, ““Around 1:50pm on Sunday, February 19th police and first responders attended a reported collision on Parsons Lane in Devonshire involving a marked police car and a private car. It appears that both vehicles were travelling along Parsons Lane when they collided. As a result, the officer driving the police vehicle sustained relatively minor injuries.

      I would hope that at least one of the cars would have been on the left hand side, we drive on the left over here ………………. don’t we ?

    • maybe just maybe says:

      It’s very possible that the accident occurred in one of the many narrow sections of Parsons Lane (making it one lane).

    Maybe the police man/woman was on there phone and not paying attention.

    • Oh well says:

      yeah cause looking at that picture the police car is clearly at fault. If the police car was any closer to the side of the road it would have been in the trees. You’re an idiot. oh and by the way it’s (their phone)

    If you look at the picture better the police car is on its side which is the left side of the road the private car if you look at the steering wheel on the peugeot its on the right side of the car so the Peugeot is on the wrong side of the road
