Local man arrested after vehicle collision
A local man, who allegedly sped away from police officers and collided with five parked cars, was arrested on suspicion of a number of traffic offences yesterday morning.
In a statement, a spokesman for the Royal Gibraltar Police said officers were patrolling the area of Winston Churchill Avenue when they saw a Gibraltar-registered vehicle driving at speed.
After following the vehicle into Laguna Estate, the driver collided with and damaged five parked motor vehicles and a police car before officers managed to stop the vehicle, the RGP said.
The 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of failing to stop for police, dangerous driving and possession of a Class B drug.
The car was also seized and impounded, the police spokesman said.
The man was later interviewed under caution by officers and is currently on bail pending further investigation.
