A Garda car crashed into a wall in Dublin on Thursday evening while attempting to stop a cyclist.
The incident occurred around 7.20pm during a routine patrol in Rathmines where Gardaí tried to request a pedal cyclist to pull over. However, the cyclist evaded the Gardaí and the Garda car hit a wall.
Following the collision on Claireville Road, a Garda was taken to St. James Hospital as a precaution but suffered no serious injuries. The driver of the Garda car was not injured.
The pedal cyclist was later stopped further up the road by Gardaí and arrested. Approximately €5,000 worth of cannabis and cocaine was found on him and seized.
He is currently detained under Section 4 of Criminal Justice Act, 1984 at Rathmines Garda station.
Investigations into the incident are ongoing.
