POLICE rammed a vehicle into a resident’s front garden to end a dramatic pursuit across Worthing this morning (Monday, November 17).

Officers had tried to stop a car near Rectory Road at 9.25am but the driver drove off, leading police on a five minute chase which ended up in Northcourt Road.

The car collided through a wall, with a police car damaged in the chase.

One eyewitness said the incident was like ‘something out of a cop drama’.

She said: “I was just hanging out some washing, when all of a sudden loads of police cars came racing down the road with their sirens blaring.

“It was very dramatic – like something out of a cop drama.

“I have no idea what’s going on. This is a very ordinary road, usually.”

Around seven police cars attended the scene and the road was temporarily closed while the incident was dealt with.

The driver was taken to hospital by ambulance to be treated.

Inspector Stuart Goodwin said: “We used tactics to stop the vehicle which resulted in it leaving the road. The driver suffered minor injuries and has been arrested for a number of offences.

“It’s never good when you have damaged vehicles but it needed to be brought to an end.”
