Cops hit after driver refuses breath test
TWO police officers are injured and a third has fired his gun after a driver refused to stop for a breath test and rammed a police car in Sydney.
Police on Sunday say the driver remains on the run after the incident in Lilyfield in the inner west, just before midnight, when a Ford Ranger failed to stop for police and was followed to Canal Road.
The ute reversed and rammed a police car before fleeing to Rozelle and crashing into a parked car, where the driver fled.
One officer was treated for head injuries while the other had lacerations. Both have been released from hospital.
A third officer fired on the ute shortly after it rammed the police vehicle. Police have opened a critical incident investigation, which will be subject to independent review.
