The stolen vehicle then tried to drive out of the car park – crashing into the police vehicle on the way, damaging both cars in the process.

Two police officers also had to go to hospital for observation.
Police allegedly found a quantity of drugs, utensil and a knife while searching the vehicle, which is believed to have been stolen from an address in Mermaid Waters over the weekend.
