Police looking for driver who rammed patrol car in Westminster

WESTMINSTER, Colo. -- Police are looking for the driver who rammed a Subaru into a patrol vehicle in Westminster on Sunday morning.

An officer tried to pull over a silver 2004 Subaru Forester at 92nd Avenue and Harlan Street about 7 a.m., the Westminster Police Department said.

The female driver continued westbound on 92nd and officers did not chase the vehicle, police said. Officers pursued the Subaru onto southbound Wadsworth Boulevard but called of the chase near 84th Avenue.

"Another officer was coming into the area at the same time from the opposite direction and activated his overhead lights as the car approached him a few blocks west of Harlan," police said in a statement. "The car veered towards that officer and rammed his patrol car."

The driver's side corner of the Subaru struck the driver's side corner of the patrol car, police said.

"Fortunately our officer was not injured during this incident, but just sustained damage to his patrol car," police stated.

The Subaru has Colorado license plate FHQ-287 and should have front-end damage on the driver's side. It might be missing a back license plate, police said.

Anyone who sees the vehicle or knows anything about the driver is asked to call police at 303-658-4360.
