Daily Tele/ The Australian: Policeman hit, dragged by car in Bondi Junction

A driver has allegedly accelerated towards police in Sydney, hitting an officer and causing him to be dragged by the car.

The incident unfolded about 9.45pm on Saturday when plain clothes police were patrolling the Bondi Junction area for drug crime.

Officers drove their unmarked vehicle, with police lights activated, into a unit block driveway in Hollywood Avenue, in a bid to speak to a man in a red Ford Fiesta.

The officers exited their vehicle, showed their police identification and demanded the vehicle stop.

But the driver allegedly accelerated towards the officers, hitting a constable and causing him to spin around and be dragged by the car, NSW Police said.

The driver failed to check on the officer’s welfare and drove from the scene.

The police car was also damaged in the incident.

The constable was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital for treatment of soft tissue injuries to his left leg and wrist.
