Three garda cars dam­aged in chase

Bray People - - NEWS -

A MAN led gar­daí on a high­speed pur­suit start­ing off near Ash­ford and end­ing in New­cas­tle, which re­sulted in the dam­age of three squad cars.

On Satur­day last, a white Honda failed to stop as it ap­proached a garda check­point at junc­tion 14 on the M11. In­stead, the ve­hi­cle left the mo­tor­way and went around a round­about on the wrong side of the road be­fore col­lid­ing with a Garda pa­trol car, caus­ing a mi­nor amount of dam­age.

The mo­torist then sped off in the di­rec­tion of Kil­loughter, with gar­dai in pur­suit.

The driver fi­nally lost con­trol of the ve­hi­cle and crashed in New­cas­tle, dam­ag­ing two garda cars, one se­ri­ously.

No one was in­jured and a man was later ar­rested and ques­tioned by Gar­dai.
