The suspect ran over a female member of the ZRP at the 2,5km peg along Amaveni Rd/ Gokwe turn off on 30/04/21 at 1130 hrs.
The member is currently battling for life at Gweru General Hospital.
It is not clear whether the police officer was manning a roadblock or minding her own business when the incident occurred.
Traffic police officers have been criticised in the past for literally jumping in the middle of the road in front of oncoming vehicles to force drivers to stop and this has often resulted in members of the force being knocked down and tragically losing their lives.
