FIVE people have been injured including a police officer after an Audi crashed into a row of parked cars while being chased by cops.
Bristol cops had been called to reports of a drink driving incident about 2am – identifying the car involved.
A pursuit then unfolded onto the A4 – with the suspect's car colliding with several parked cars at 2.20am.
A second crash then unfolded involving a marked police car.
Four people from the Audi were rushed to hospital, one with possible life-threatening and life changing injuries.
The officer was also taken to hospital with suspected minor injuries and will now recover from home.
A man in his late teens has been arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol and dangerous driving.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) are investigating this matter independently after a mandatory referral was made due to serious injury following police contact.
The A4 Bath Road is closed from junctions with Winchester Road, Wick Road and Tranway Road.
Anyone with information should contact police – if you can help, please contact 101 and quote reference 5223207383.
