Police Woman not Fighting for Life after new years day crash… Despite media reports

A young policewoman is not fighting for her life in hospital after being injured on duty as reported in main stream media. 

The policewoman was hurt in a police car crash in Fleet, Hampshire.

ITV News has reported The crash happened while she and other colleague were responding to an emergency 999 on blue lights. 

The crash happened at 2.30am on New Years Day. 

The officers were both trapped in the police car and had to be cut free.

ITV and the Daily Mail also claim the the female officer was rushed to the  major trauma centre at St. George’s Hospital in Tooting in a life-threatening condition.

These reports are incorrect and infact she is doing well at home.

Hampshire Police Federation have confirmed “During the early hours of New Years Eve a police vehicle was involved in a collision in Fleet, Hampshire. Reports in the media have stated that a female officer is fighting for her life in hospital.

“This is incorrect. The facts are that the female officer was treated at hospital and has since been released to recover at home. The officer is in a lot of pain but otherwise is ok.”
