A police officer was hospitalised following the incident, which unfolded in Lambeth, South London, on Friday (15 April), but he has since been discharged. 

The Metropolitan Police are now appealing to the public to help find the driver of the tipper truck that rammed into one of their marked cars on Landor Road.

In a statement released today (18 April), they said authorities had indicated for the Ford truck to stop due to a damaged mirror and the way the person behind the wheel was driving. 

The report reads: “At around 10:50hrs on Friday, 15 April officers in a marked police car in Landor Road, Stockwell indicated for a yellow and black Ford Transit tipper truck to stop.

“This was a routine traffic stop, initiated because of the manner of the driving and damage to the vehicle.

“Instead of stopping, the truck reversed at speed into the bonnet of the police car. The impact was significant, causing extensive damage.”

A clip of the incident was shared on social media with the caption: “Good morning Brixton.”

According to the Met Police, one of the officers involved was sent to hospital for injuries to his head and hands, but he has since been released. 

Another cop was assessed at the scene by paramedics and was found to not have any injuries requiring treatment.

While a search of the area was carried out, the tipper truck sped off so fast that it could not be located. 

An investigation is now underway to track it down and identify those involved, with authorities urging anyone with information to come forward.  

The statement continues: “The truck is yellow and black in colour, with a damaged mirror on one side. 

“The registration is believed to be FA04 UZW although the F is missing from the rear number plate.

“Anyone who sees it is asked to call 999. Anyone with other information about those currently in control of it, or its recent whereabouts, should call 101, giving the reference 2376/15APR.

“Information can also be provided to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.”

Twitter account Brick Cop also claims to have spoken with the driver of the IRV police vehicle, saying that ‘apart from being a little sore [he] is in good spirits’.
