Garda patrol car rammed by fleeing burglar in stolen vehicle

A GARDA patrol car has been rammed and a man arrested after a creeper burglary investigation.

The incident happened in the early hours of this morning on the Barnesmore Gap to Castlederg road in Co Donegal.

Gardai managed to escape injury in the incident.

Two patrol cars from Donegal Town and Ballybofey were involved in a chase of a car stolen during a creeper burglary in Killybegs.

A man was arrested after the patrol car was rammed. He is being questioned at Ballyshannon Garda Station.

The incident came the day after delegates at the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors (AGSI) conference in Westport heard that hundreds of gardai have been injured on duty over the past two years.
