Two men have been arrested following two hit and run incidents in Derry.
PSNI and Gardaí in Donegal were involved in a cross-border chase in a bid to halt a Volkswagen Golf which was being driven dangerously throughout the city on Wednesday.
The car was initially involved in a hit and run collision on the Temple Road, Strathfoyle.
Police received a number of calls about the manner in which the vehicle was being driven before it was detected again. The car was seen speeding through the city, ignoring checkpoints and at one point it took the wrong side of a roundabout.
Gardaí in Donegal were alerted to the incident and moved towards the border to assist the chase. They soon located the vehicle and managed to chase it back into Derry.
A second hit and run was then reported on the Groarty Road, where the Golf hit another vehicle and narrowly avoided striking a pedestrian.
Police led a chase on foot after the vehicle was abandoned and the occupants attempted to run. Two men have been apprehended remanded in custody for multiple offences.
An appeal has been launched to find the driver of the car that was struck on Groarty Road and also the pedestrian that avoided the suspect’s vehicle. Police are eager to speak with the people involved in the incident. Anyone with any information is asked to contact PSNI Foyle.Tags:
