nsw police looking for couple who rammed police car in byron shire

TWEED HEADS, Australia - NSW police are searching for a man and woman after a police car was rammed on the Pacific Highway on the Tweed Coast late Sunday.

A highway patrol officer stopped a white Toyota Hilux on the Pacific Highway near Bangalow, 765 kilometres north of Sydney, around 4:30 Sunday afternoon.

A man behind the wheel of the car told the senior police officer the woman alongside him was heavily-pregnant and was having contractions.

The police officer said he would call an ambulance but while doing so, the driver got back into the Hilux and reversed harshly, crashing into the front of the police car. The driver then drove off in a northerly direction.

The senior constable was not injured in the incident.

Officers from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command conducted extensive patrols, but the vehicle was not located.

Police were later called to Hayters Hill Nature Reserve, where they located the Toyota Hilux. It had been torched (set on fire).

Detectives then established a house nearby had been broken into and a number of items stolen, including a blue Suzuki van with NSW registration OLM003.

Police have appealed to the police to alert them if they see this vehicle. Under no circumstances should anyone approach the occupants of the car. Instead they should call 000 (triple zero) immediately.
