Another collision between a police vehicle and a car caused traffic delays in Smith’s this morning.

The officer, who sustained abrasions to his arms, was responding to a traffic offence when the collision occurred.

Both the car and the police motorcycle were damaged.

Traffic was delayed and motorists were advised to take alternative routes if possible.

A spokesman added later that diversions ended by 9.30am.

The incident was the latest in a string of collisions involving police vehicles over the last few weeks.

Police said that the incident happened at about 7.25am on North Shore Road near Penhurst Park.

Police have appealed for witnesses.
