A South Australian Police officer has been injured and a man has been arrested during a car chase through Adelaide’s suburbs this afternoon.

A white Isuzu utility was reported stolen from a Noarlunga Centre car wash, in Adelaide’s southern suburbs, on Thursday morning.

It was spotted by police on Flaxmill Road at Christie Downs around 12:30pm on Friday.

Officers did not pursue the car — instead, the PolAir helicopter was deployed to monitor it for more than 30 minutes throughout Adelaide’s southern and western suburbs.

A police officer was hit by a different car, driven by a member of the public, as he lay road spikes on Anzac Highway at Everard Park.

He received minor injuries and was treated by paramedics at the scene.

The offending vehicle was later found abandoned near Colley Terrace, Glenelg, with the male driver running away from the scene.

The man was caught and arrested in a nearby carpark.
