Video: Driver on the run after brazen cop car ramming
Detectives are searching for the driver of a car who rammed a marked police car in Frankston early this morning.
Highway Patrol members were travelling on Cranbourne Road in Frankston shortly after 2am when they checked the speed of a dark bronze-coloured Land Rover Discovery.
The officers did a U-turn and pulled up several metres behind the car, which had stopped at a set of lights.
That’s when the driver put the car in reverse and slammed into the front of the police car, causing extensive front end damage.
Police want public help to find this driver, who brazenly rammed into a cop car this morning.
