Police And Children Get Whiplash In Double Crash

Three police officers suffered whiplash injuries as they crashed while on the way to deal with another car accident near Atherstone.

They were driving in the Peugeot 306 with blues and twos flashing and wailing when they collided with a Mitsubishi Charisma on Saturday at 1pm.

The accident happened 100 yards away from another crash at the junction of the A5 Watling Street with Woodford Lane, which the officers had been sent to deal with.

The officers, one woman and two men, all needed treatment for whiplash. One of the officers was a probationer.

Three young children also suffered whiplash injuries in the original accident that the police were going to.

They were in a Nissan Micra being driven on the A5 southbound towards Nuneaton by their father, a 40 year-old-man from Barwell, who suffered a broken right leg in the accident.

The children, a girl aged ten, and boys aged nine and six were hurt after the Micra collided with a red Rover 214.

The Rover, driven by a 38-year-old Hinckley man, was pulling out from Woodford Lane onto the A5 when the collision happened. Witness should call 01926 415000.
