A man has been arrested after two police officers were hurt following a high speed car chase.
The pursuit began when a car failed to stop for a roadside check and led the police up the M1, through Swallownest and Hackenthorpe.
Just before 6.30am on Sunday 6th October, a grey Volvo car failed to stop for officers at Meadowhall Retail Park in Sheffield.
As it left the scene, a 47-year-old male police officer suffered minor injuries.
He was later checked at the city’s Northern General Hospital before being allowed home.
Traffic officers later spotted the car on the M1 motorway and once again it failed to stop.
What followed was a high speed chase onto the A57, around Swallownest and into Mossway at Hackenthorpe.
The Volvo was then in collision with the police car, a white BMW that had its blue lights on, at Carr Forge Lane.
The police car’s driver, a 49-year-old male police officer, sustained minor injuries.
He was taken to Rotherham Hospital, but not kept in.
The Volvo is then thought to have been driven towards Birley Spa Lane, before going off road, across a greenway and being abandoned by two males.
One man was caught after an extensive search of the area.
Anyone with information about the events should contact South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 308 of Sunday 6th October 2013.
A 21-year-old man from Woodhouse Mill, Sheffield, was arrested on suspicion of theft of a motor vehicle and failing to stop for a uniformed police office.
He has been bailed until mid November.
