Gardai have appealed for witnesses to come forward after an incident in Newcastle, Co Tipperary last night where a car left the road but nobody was found at the scene. 

Gardaí said that officers in Cahir received a report of a road traffic collision at Boolahallagh at approximately 10pm.

When Gardai arrived they found a grey Ford Focus with partial registration number 08KY that had left the road.

However, officers reported that “no person was present at the scene”.

It was soon after that Gardaí became aware that two males, aged in their late teens, had presented themselves at South Tipperary General Hospital “with injuries consistent with a road traffic collision”.

“One of the men is believed to have serious injuries and was transferred to University Hospital Waterford whilst the other is believed to have minor injuries,” gardai said.

The road is still closed and diversions are in place while Gardaí examine the scene, they added.

Gardaí are now appealing for witnesses.

Any motorist who was travelling on the Newcastle to Cappoquin Road, particularly drivers with dash cam footage, between 5pm and 10pm is asked to Gardaí at Cahir on 052 7445630 or the Garda Confidential Line at 1800 666 111.
