AN INVESTIGATION is underway today to find out how a police car ended up smashed into a wall.
Revellers in Felixstowe watched on in amazement as a CCTV police car was involved in an accident on Bent Hill in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Onlookers said the car was parked near the Bandbox night club and rolled down part of the hill with a member of the public on the backseat before it crashed.
One onlooker, who wants to remain anonymous, said: “There was a big commotion because watching a police car roll down a steep hill and crash isn't something you see every day.
“There was a guy in the back seat. I don't know if he was injured as the police just took him from the vehicle and put him in a police van
“It could have been even more dangerous as people walk up that hill all the time and could have been hit.
