A man is recovering after his car was struck by a van which drove off without stopping.
The incident happened on Saturday evening close to Nena Models in Stranorlar.
The van pulled out of Dunwiley and struck the passing car.
The driver of the car, which had a 5 year old passenger on board, was left with broken ribs and a lot of bruising.
The van failed to stop and drove off following the incident which took place around 8pm.
The van, which was white in colour, struck the car so hard that it forced it into a spin which knocked down a nearby wall.
The man’s partner, Louise Thompson, has appealed for anybody who may know who was driving the van to contact Gardai.
Louise said ” Thankfully no one is too badly hurt but what kinda person does this? The car is written off and claiming off our own insurance hardly seems fair. The guards say more than likely someone was drunk or with no insurance. That’s no help to us. If we claim off our insurance it’ll probably go up €2000 at least a year. We have already paid over €3,000 for the insurance for the year.
“Anyone with any information please get in contact with me or guards.”
Gardai have confirmed they are investigating the hit and run.Tags:
