MANCHESTER, England, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Police in a British city said they are considering new driving rules after an officer totaled an unmarked car during a test drive.

A spokesman for the Greater Manchester Police declined to give specifics on how the officer crashed the Volkswagen Golf R in December but said the department is "reviewing its policy on officers test driving cars," the BBC reported Wednesday.

The spokesman said no other vehicles were involved in the crash and the incident is under investigation.
