PC Paul Fletcher from the Greater Manchester Police was lucky to walk away from the wreckage of this Volkswagen Golf R after coming to grief during an early morning test drive.
Fletcher, who has previously appeared on BBC TV’s Car Wars program and has a Facebook page in his honour, was evaluating the Golf R on public roads. The results of the test would help decide if Police should add the 195kW all-wheel drive hot hatch to its pursuit fleet. But things go bump in the night as Fletcher found around 2am on Wednesday.
As you can see the car is a mess and total write off. It’s no surprise to learn that PC Fletcher has been stood down from all driving duties while an internal investigation runs its course.
Yeah, good luck with that one mate.
