Hijacked vehicle hits police car

A MAN will appear in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate's Court today after he allegedly crashed a hijacked vehicle into a police car during the early hours of yesterday morning.

Police spokesman Captain Johan Rheeder said the silver Volkswagen Golf was reported stolen after a hijacking in Kwazakhele at the weekend.

A police chase ensued after the vehicle was seen being driven recklessly and negligently.

The suspect then collided with the police vehicle in Stanford Road shortly after midnight on Saturday.

The suspect was arrested and will appear in court today. – Kathryn Kimberley
