Police officer's vehicle in collision with motorcycle while executing U-turn

The Authority oversaw a Police investigation into a notification from the Tasman District involving an officer who, when he did a U turn to pursue a speeding driver, pulled into the path of an oncoming motorcyclist.

The rider sustained moderate injuries and the officer was prosecuted for Careless Driving Causing Injury.

The matter was resolved in Court and the officer and victim completed a restorative justice meeting.

The Authority concurred with Police's approach.
