Dozens of police officers escaped serious injuries after three police cars collided in Belfast city center.

The incident occurred early Friday morning on Upper Lisburn Road.

A PSNI spokesman said an Audi A4 car was seen driving violently just after 4:30 a.m. and was not stopped by police.

They signaled for the police to stop the car, but it took off and a short chase began.

As the vehicle moved into the city centre, officers from the armed response force positioned the vehicle at the Grosvenor Road/Fisherwick Place intersection and stopped it.

Superintendent Christian Bradley said the vehicle was repeatedly driven towards and crashed into a police car while officers attempted to arrest the driver and passenger.

“We are grateful that the officers were not seriously injured,” he said.

“Without the professionalism and courage of my colleagues in stopping this vehicle and arresting the driver and passengers involved in this dangerous and violent incident, the outcome could have been tragic.”

Two men, aged 54 and 30, were arrested on various charges, including dangerous driving, driving without a license, driving without insurance, and failing to take a prior breath test.

Police urged anyone who witnessed the incident or has dashcam footage to call police at 101. – PA
