Two Tauranga Police officers are being treated for minor injuries after their patrol cars were smashed into earlier this morning.
A police spokesperson says a man had driven off, failed to stop for police and a short pursuit was initiated.
The driver has then crashed into two police cars on 2nd Ave.
“A 29-year-old is due to appear in court tomorrow on the following charges: breach of bail, failing to stop, refusing to give blood, causing criminal damage with reckless disregard, injuring with reckless disregard.”
The two officers involved in the crash are being medically assessed and “are believed to have suffered minor injuries”.
