Officer undergoes leg amputation following collision
An officer has had part of his leg removed after a speeding vehicle collided with a marked police car.
PC Tom Dornan, of Thames Valley Police, underwent an amputation below the knee after he was rushed to hospital earlier this month.
A teenage girl injured in the collision remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition, while the other officer, PC 1763 Lam, suffered bruises, cuts, grazes and swelling.
PC Dorman said: “I would like to thank my colleagues, the emergency services and members of the public who were at the scene.
“Their actions have helped to save my life, and I will always be incredibly grateful for their efforts.
“I suffered a very serious injury and I am still recovering from this. However, without their work and support, the situation would have been very different.”
On September 2, a silver Ford focus collided with a Toyota Prius that had been stopped by two officers in Norden Road, Maidenhead.
The Prius was hit with so much force that it was turned on its side.
Two 24-year-old men from Maidenhead arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving have been released under investigation.
Senior investigating officer, Sergeant Darren Brown, said: “This incident has left three people with serious injuries.
“One of whom, a police officer who was on duty at the time, has had a leg amputation as a result. My thoughts remain with everyone who suffered as a result of the incident, as well as their friends and families.”
