IPCC investigate Royston smash

A CRASH which hospitalised two people is being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

The collision in Melbourn Street, Royston, took place at just after 1am this morning, closing the road and the junction with the A10.

It is believed the car collided with a set of traffic lights leaving two people injured.

Hertfordshire fire and rescue service said they were taken to hospital, but would not disclose the severity of their injuries.

Hertfordshire Constabulary will not comment on the crash and have referred the matter to the IPCC.

“The collision in Royston is now being fully investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) as an independent investigation and we cannot comment any further at this time,” a spokesman said.

The IPCC said the vehicle involved in the crash was not a police car but are investigating the role of a police car that was in the vicinity of the crash.
