A man and teenage girl are in custody after an allegedly stolen car hit a member in Bell Park early this morning.

Officers located the allegedly stolen Hyundai in Yaraan Street about 1am.

Police approached the stationary car in an attempt to arrest the occupants. They arrested a female passenger but the car drove off and struck a member and the teenage girl.

The vehicle then sped away but not before crashing into a divisional van.

The car was followed a short distance to Ballarat Road where it rammed another police vehicle before it was stopped and the driver arrested.

A 19-year-old man and a teenage girl are currently in custody and are currently receiving medical treatment.

The Senior Constable was taken to hospital with injuries to his legs.
