A GARDA HAS BEEN injured after being hit by a vehicle which failed to stop at a checkpoint in Dublin’s inner city this morning.

The incident happened shortly before 11am on Baggot Street.

The 04 KE registered Volvo XC90 Jeep, silver in colour, was involved in a number of incidents around the Macken Street and Grand Canal Street area.

The vehicle was missing its rear licence plate and during a traffic stop, a member of the Garda Siochana was dragged by it, causing him injury.

The vehicle left Macken Street, travelled onto Grand Canal Street, then turned right and travelled along the Grand Canal until it turned left over Baggot Street Bridge. It then turned right onto Waterloo Road, where the two occupants got out and were later arrested and detained at Irishtown Garda Station under the provisions of Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act where they remain in custody.
