A police officer has been left with a dislocated shoulder after he was struck by a car during an arrest near the New South Wales-Queensland border.
Officers spotted a stolen BMW in the carpark of Tweed Heads Hospital at around 1 o’clock on Sunday morning, when the vehicle was allegedly driven into a police car.
A Senior Constable who came to assist was hit by the car.
It then collided with a second car which had a 15-month-old child onboard.
The stolen car eventually stopped on nearby Avla Street. Three men were arrested and the BMW seized for forensic examination.
A fourth man remains on the run.
The injured officer was taken to the nearby hospital for treatment.
