A Police officer remains in a “serious but stable condition” a week after a serious crash on the A38 in Rooksbridge, near Burnham-On-Sea.

The male Police officer was trapped in his vehicle, a marked Police car, after it left the road. He had to be freed by fire crews shortly after 1.30am on Tuesday January 29th, as reported here.

Police spokesman Wayne Baker told Burnham-On-Sea.com on Tuesday February 5th: “The officer remains in a serious, but stable condition.”

The A38 Bristol Road between Rooksbridge and East Brent was closed for over seven hours until 9am as Police carried out investigation work at the scene.

Two police dogs who were also in the vehicle at the time of the collision were also taken to a veterinary hospital where they were checked and found not to have suffered any injuries.

Caroline Peters, Head of Tri-Force Specialist Operations, said: “Our thoughts are with our officer and his family and we’re supporting them and our colleagues through this difficult time.”
