Derry PSNI appeal for information after police car struck in hit and run

Police in Derry are trying to identify the driver of a stolen car that made off after colliding with a police vehicle.

At around 10pm on Christmas Day, a white Mercedes car drove through traffic lights at Northland Road and crossed to the ‘wrong’ side of the road before colliding with the police car.

The Mercedes, registration number VIB 7576 had been stolen earlier that evening from Drumleck Drive in Shantallow. It was subsequently abandoned across the border in Co Donegal.

Anyone who saw the car at any stage on the evening of December 25 and can help identify the occupants is asked to contact police at Strand Road..
