NSW police have uncovered more than $200 million worth of the drug known as ice after a man allegedly driving a van with the drugs inside crashed into a police car.

Security footage has shown a Toyota HiAce hitting a parked police car in Eastwood in Sydney's north around 10.30am on Monday.

No one was injured in the crash, but one of the police cars was significantly damaged in the incident.

Police officers then stopped the male driver of the van in the nearby suburb of Ryde an hour later, before searching the vehicle.

While searching the back of van, police uncovered 273 kilograms of methylamphetamine hidden in moving boxes.

I wonder if it ever occurred to the driver of that van at any point before the arrest: "This is starting to seem like a bad idea."
