A POLICE car was one of the vehicles involved in a four-car collision in Ryde yesterday (Thursday) afternoon.

The crash happened at the junction of Argyll Street and West Street shortly after 1.20pm.

Officers are investigating concerns the marked police car may have driven through a red light.

A police spokesman said: "Police can confirm we are aware of concerns that a police vehicle may have gone through a red light. The movements of all vehicles prior to the collision form part of the investigation."

A woman passenger in one of the vehicles was treated at the scene for shock by paramedics from the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service, but did not need to go to hospital for further treatment.

Witnesses to the crash, or anyone with information, is asked to contact Sgt Dave Sanderson, of Hampshire Constabulary's Roads Policing Unit, at Shanklin Police Station, by phoning 101. 

Information can also be given anonymously by calling the Crimestoppers charity on 0800 555 111.
