Police officers and pedestrian injured by 'donuting' hit and run driver
Two police officers and a female pedestrian were injured by a hit and run driver in Newry last Thursday, May 9.
The incident took place in the Dublin Road area around 11.30pm.
Police received a report of anti-social driving and attended the scene. They observed a vehicle attempting a 'donut'.
Officers used their blue lights to signal to the vehicle, which then attempted to flee the scene, colliding with the police vehicle, a parked car and a female pedestrian.
The woman was taken to hospital for treatment of her injuries which are not believed to be life threatening.
Two police officers also suffered injuries as a result of the incident.
Constable Gerry Roberts appealed for anyone who witnessed the incident or may have dashcam footage to contact police on 101, quoting reference number 11 of 10/05/19.
Alternatively, information can also be provided to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.
