Pershore Road at the junction of Dog Pool Lane and Hobson Road is closed while enquiries continue.

We’d ask people not to share any footage on social media, out of respect for the families involved and not to compromise future investigations.

Our Professional Standards Department has been informed and has contacted the Independent Office for Police Conduct, due to the vehicle failing to stop for officers.
