A 47-year-old Warrington man has been arrested after failing to stop for police which led to a two-vehicle collision on Lovely Lane, Warrington last night.
As a result of the incident a 32-year-old man from Manchester had to be cut free from his vehicle by firefighters using specialist cutting equipment.
The collision took place on Lovely Lane at the junction of Bewsey Road and Lodge Drive.
A Cheshire Police spokesperson said: “At 7.55pm on Tuesday 20 April officers attempted to stop a red Jaguar near to Warrington District General Hospital.
“The driver of the car failed to comply and made off in the direction of Froghall Lane.
