ONE man has been rushed to hospital after a police car smashed into the car he was travelling in on Oxford St this morning. The man was cut free from a Toyota Carolla after the highway patrol car collided with it at 7.45am near the intersection with Green St in Paddington. Inspector Amanda Calder said the police officer was conducting a routine patrol of Oxford St when he spotted a vehicle committing a traffic offence. “He was trying to catch up to that vehicle, but at this stage we’re not really sure what happened and the investigation’s still continuing,’’ Ms Calder said. "At this stage we only have one witness who was looking from the opposite direction. At this stage we don't know if the highway patrol car had its lights and siren on. A passenger had to be cut out of the Corolla after it collided with a police car. Picture: Brad Hunter “The highway patrol car does have in-car video and that will obviously be thoroughly viewed and that will tell us what happened.’’ The male passenger was taken to St Vincent's hospital suffering a suspected fractured pelvis and internal injuries. The female driver was treated for shock and the male constable was taken to Sydney hospital and has been released. The crash was captured in the police car's camera footage and the street remains closed to traffic as crash investigators try to determine the cause of the crash.
