Hit and run horror on Barrack St

Gardaí are appealing for information following a serious hit and run incident which occurred last Saturday morning on Barrack Street. The incident left a male in his 30’s with serious injuries after he was deliberately struck by a car which drove at him while he walked on the footpath.
Sinn Fein councillor Ruairi O’Murchú labelled the attack as ‘sinister and extremely dangerous’ and urged anybody with information to contact the gardaí.
“In this incident a car mounted the footpath on Barrack St. in order to hit a pedestrian. The man was then dragged for a significant distance underneath the vehicle. This is a residential area and I dread to think what could have happened if children had been in the vicinity of this incident. The people who did this care nothing for the lives of people in this area. Their actions have seriously injured this man and could have resulted in a fatality. It also had the potential to impact many more people living in this area. I urge anyone with information to bring it to An Gardá Siochána as quickly as possible,” concluded the recently elected Sinn Fein councillor.
Gardaí say they are treating this incident as a deliberate act of endangerment and released some information about the car in a statement on Saturday afternoon.
“Gardaí are investigating a serious hit and run road traffic collision that occurred today 1st June at approximately 9:55am at Barrack Street, County Louth. The incident left a male in his 30’s with serious injuries and he was taken to our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda. Gardaí are treating this as a deliberate act of endangerment and are appealing to the public for any information about the current whereabouts of or on the driver of a silver Ford Focus with a registration plate of 99-D-25111. Gardaí can be contacted at Dundalk Garda station on 0429388400 or the Garda confidential line on 1800666111.
