A police car has landed on its roof after an alleged stolen vehicle rammed into authorities before crashing into a nearby tree in Western Australia.
A 31-year-old Esperance man has been charged after colliding with a parked police vehicle on Parmango Road, Condingup on Tuesday before he struck and spat on officers following the crash, police allege.
The Toyota LandCruiser utility was allegedly stolen from Castletown at 8.30am.

The allegedly stolen car was finally tracked down at 3.30pm where police tried to stop the vehicle.
‘A police vehicle was positioned further along Parmango Road, ready to deploy a tyre deflation device,’ police said.
WA Police allege the stolen vehicle was being driven in an erratic manner that then caused the utility to collide with the police car.
‘The impact caused the police vehicle to roll onto its roof, and the stolen vehicle crossed back to the correct side of the road and crashed into a tree,’ police said.
