VIDEO: Joyriders smash into garda 4x4 during high speed chase

This incredible dashcam footage which was sent into FM104’s Phoneshow with Chris Barry shows gardai pursuing speeding joyriders through Dublin.

 

The juvenile delinquent at the wheel of the stolen Mitsubishi Galant raced the vehicle through Dublin’s Rathfarnham and Terenure between 4pm and 4:15pm yesterday. 

Four occupants of the car, all aged under 18, were arrested after the pursuit came to an end near the Terenure crossroads.

Three have since been released without charge while the driver is still in garda custody.

A picture of the mangled Mitsubishi was snapped and posted to the FM104 phone show’s Facebook page with the caption:
