A 16-YEAR-OLD is due in court this morning following a crash on the N7 yesterday evening after a report of a burglary in Athy.

At around 3pm yesterday, gardaí received a report of a burglary at a house in Athy and around 45 minutes later, they pulled in a car which was travelling on the N7 Naas Road.

However, as gardaí approached the car, it took off at speed and headed towards Dublin. Moments later the car was involved in a collision with a second car at Junction 8.

One of the four occupants of the car was taken by ambulance to Tallaght Hospital and the driver of the second car was taken to Naas Hospital with minor injuries.
