Cops Actions?

Seen this on another forum and can't understand the cops logic.... wonder if anyone can make sense of it??? :duh:

What an evening! We were on our way to the field at about 6:30 this evening when we got caught up in a terrible RTA.

As we approached the junction of our estate to join the main road, I look right - clear, look left - clear, look right again - saw a Merc doing about 100mph in a 40 zone!! Merc flies round a right hand bend almost losing it, he manages to regain control and flies off into the distance.

So I pull out and continue on my way. As we round a right hand, and immediate left hand blind bend, we see a Saxo in the middle of the road sideways on smashed to fook. Looking further on we see the Merc in a ditch, smoke and steam ****** out of both cars.

So I get out, and being first on the scene start to make sure everyone is ok,

which it is soon apparrent no-one is. There is a little boy in the Saxo hanging out of where the boot used to be, upside down and bleeding. When I take a closer look at him, I see his femur is snapped at 90 degrees and he is bleeding from his nose and eyes. His dad started yelling at me to get him out, and I had to make him stop moving him, so as not to do more damage.

The victims of the crash, mum, dad and the 7 year old boy had to be airlifted to hospital, and the Merc driver and passenger walked out with a bump on the head.

The best bit is though, I got breathalised, held up for 3 hours, had to give a statemet about 3 times and I got the car siezed (wifes Polo) for examination. WTF I am a witness not a suspect. And they can't even tell me when we will get the car back.

Sounds like a pompus Merc driver :angry::offtopic: but I remember once when I was walking across a raod in a Pedestrian area and a Merc driver just persisted to drive into me :angry:

Sounds most bizzare as to why they would take witnesses car unless the Merc driver knows the right people if you know what I mean.

Strange one this??? I would say that the Police had been told by the medical teams present that this could be a fatal (one of the Saxo passengers/driver could have been worse than you thought and not expected to live). You would not have been told this on scene as it is obviously sensitive information.

If this was the case, the area would have been treated as a crime scene, charges of man slaughter possible. Once the area is declared a crime scene, everything is seized and held as evidence, which sounds very much what has happened to you, even if not directly involved in the immedite cause.

    • All-new Lexus RX: luxury expressed in interior design simplicity
      Lavish details and flourishes are not necessarily the best way to express luxury. A “less is more” approach with design simplicity can be a much more effective way to communicate high quality, as witnessed in the interior of the all-new Lexus RX

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.

      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”

      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.

      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.

      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
