A British police officer in his 40s has recently crashed a Volkswagen Golf R, worth GBP40k, after taking the car for a test drive and loosing control of the wheel.
We’ve always said here on inautonews.com that where ever there will be exotic cars, or powerful ones in this case, there will also be exotic / powerful car crashes and this latest example is coming as a backup to our statement. An unfortunate incident has recently happened in the United Kingdom, where a police officer in his 40s managed to crash a 40k GBP VW Golf R after taking it for a test drive.
“The car was being tested and it went horribly wrong. Police do use public roads to test vehicles – the risk is reduced by the location and the time when this is done. Another officer in a powerful Audi had gone out on patrol with him at the same time – but was patrolling elsewhere when the accident happened”, as a senior source said.
According to reports, the officer was apparently trialling the Volkswagen Golf R on a public road, at 2 a.m., when he lost control of the wheel skidding at a roundabout in Wharfside Way, Trafford Park. The man had to be rescued by firefighters and he suffered spinal injuries. The policeman has been now discharged form hospital and he would probably think twice before pushing the gas pedal harder next time.
