TWO PEOPLE HAVE been injured in an early morning collision involving a garda car in Donegal.

The drivers of two cars were brought to Donegal University Hospital with injuries that are not thought to be life-threatening.

The second car involved in the 3.45am crash has been described as a black Fiat Punto.

Officers from the Garda Síochana Ombudsman Commission (Gsoc) attended the scene at McGrory’s Brae in Meencargagh, around a mile outside the town of Ballybofey.

Gsoc said it was “examining the matter” along with a garda investigation into the collision.

The road is currently closed to facilitate a forensic examination and local diversions are in place. The route is expected to reopen around lunchtime.

Any witnesses have been asked to contact Letterkenny garda station on 074 916 7100, the garda confidential line on 1800 666 111 or any garda station.
