Galway gardaí are seeking the assistance of the public in tracing a car and its driver, following a serious incident in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
At approximately 2:50am, a patrol car from Galway Garda Station, with three gardaí inside, was rammed at a checkpoint in Parkmore.
The offending vehicle, a silver/grey Opel Astra 04-SO-1113 attempted to evade gardaí on the Parkmore Rd and then rammed the patrol car twice before fleeing towards the Tuam Road.
An extensive search was carried out but the Opel Astra has not yet been located. Gardaí are appealing to the public for any information on this Opel Astra 04-SO-1113 or for any information on its driver.
