Two teenagers have been arrested after allegedly hitting a policeman in a stolen car at Geelong.

Police spotted a Hyundai, which was believed to be stolen, sitting in Yaraan Street at Bell Park about 1am.

A girl in the passenger seat was arrested, but when officers approached the driver’s side, the 19-year-old driver sped off.

As a result, Leading Senior Constable and the girl were both hit by the car, and a divvie van was also injured.

A short pursuit ensued down Ballarat Road until it came to a crashing halt when the getaway car slammed into another police car.

Bother teenagers are now in custody.

The injured police officer is also in hospital with injuries to his legs.
