TWO cops on an emergency call out were hurt when their car was wrecked in a crash.
Both community PCs, aged 28 and 26, suffered shoulder injuries and were taken to the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley for treatment.
The driver of the other car was also taken to the RAH for a check up.
The crash happened at the busy junction of Cockels Loan and Paisley Road, Renfrew, on Sunday afternoon.
The police car’s siren and blue lights on when it went through traffic lights before the smash.
The officers scrambled out of their mangled car and the driver of the other vehicle, a Nissan, got out of his.
A man at the scene said: “There are bits of both cars scattered over the road. It’s amazing no one was seriously hurt.
“Three people were taken to hospital. There were traffic delays for some time.”
A police spokesman said: “A person is facing a charge and a report has been sent to the procurator fiscal.”
The officers were on an emergency call out to the Erskine Bridge where a man was threatening to jump off.
But as other police vehicles arrived at the scene the would-be jumper ran off. Cops later caught up with him.
