So who messed up?

A collision involving a New South Wales Police car and a red sedan was caught on camera and has prompted heated debate as to who is in the wrong.

The video shows a red sedan at a green light, slowing before deciding to go through. The police car is on the left, and with sirens on goes through the intersection too – before hitting the rear of the red car.

Both cars then pull over on the other side of the intersection.

Some people are saying the sedan driver was in the wrong – saying their mistake was not giving way to a police car with its siren and light blaring.

Others say the cop could have easily avoided the crash, and even appears to intentionally hit the car.

Most people agree that neither car seemed sure of the other driver’s intentions – which led both to make a bad call.

New South Wales police have stated that no one was injured in the incident, and the matter has been investigated.
