A MAN has been treated in hospital after a collision in Knocknaheeny involving a car believed to have been stolen.
Up to four people travelling in the suspect stolen car fled the scene.
The incident occurred on Harbour View Road at around midnight.
The injured man was driving his car when it was in collision with the other car. He was taken to the Mercy University Hospital with minor injuries.
Both cars will be forensically examined by gardaí.
The scene is sealed off this morning as gardaí investigate the incident.
The incident occurred only metres from the site of a fatal crash earlier this year.
16-year-old Kimberly O'Connor was killed in a single vehicle collision on Harbour View Road in February, just a short distance from her home.
