A woman has suffered “possible life threatening head injuries” after she was hit by a police car which was responding to reports of a man with a knife making threats.

The vehicle was on an emergency blue light run responding to an incident in the Stokes Croft area when the crash happened in Bristol city centre last night.

The woman was taken to Southmead Hospital after the collision at the junction of Gloucester Road and Ninetree Hill at 10pm.

A man was arrested on suspicion of assault, and a knife has been seized.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary said the force’s professional standards department have been advised of the collision due to the fact a police vehicle was involved.

The force said: “The road has been closed to allow a detailed examination to take place.

“We are keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the area at the time who may have information to help our investigation.”
