Investigators are appealing for information after a police car was rammed during a pursuit with two stolen vehicles in the state’s Central West overnight.



Just after 1am on Tuesday officers attached to Central West Police District Proactive Crime Team attempted to stop two 4WD Landcruisers on Roselawn Drive, Orange.

After they failed to stop, a pursuit was initiated through several streets before one 4WD turned onto Pindari Close and crashed into a power pole.

The 4WD then reversed, turned around and rammed the front of a police vehicle before driving away.

It was later found abandoned in Katoa Place, Orange. The second 4WD was found abandoned on Currong Crescent.


The driver of the police vehicle - a male senior constable - sustained minor injuries.


Police believe the cars were stolen from homes within Orange earlier in the evening.

As inquiries continue, police are appealing for anyone with information, including dashcam or CCTV footage from the area, to contact local police.



Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.


Information is treated in strict confidence.


The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
