Galway Daily news man and woman found dead in home in clare

A file is being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions in connection with the ramming of a Garda Patrol Car this week.

A man in his 40s was arrested on Thursday in relation to an incident on Wednesday night, where a black Audi rammed a Garda Patrol Car that was attempting to pull it over.

The man was detained at Murrough Garda Station, and has since been released without charge. Investigations are ongoing, and a file will go to the DPP.

At around 8:30pm on Wednesday night, at Altan on the Western Distributor Road, Gardaí activated their patrol car lights and approached a car.

The driver of this car then took off at speed in their direction, and despite efforts by the Gardaí to take evasive action, rammed the front passenger side of their car.

The two officers in the car were injured, but did not need to be taken to hospital.

The audi fled at high speed out onto the Western Distributor Road. The car was later found abandoned in the Knocknacarra area.
