Gardaí have arrested and charged a man in relation to a dangerous driving incident after he failed to stop at a Covid checkpoint and led officers on a chase from north Cork to Limerick.
At around 5pm on Sunday, a car failed to stop for gardaí at an Operation Fanacht checkpoint in Kanturk, Co Cork.
A managed containment operation ensued as gardaí followed the car at a safe distance.
The car was witnessed travelling at high speed and on the wrong side of the road on occasions.
The car was eventually involved in a single vehicle collision at a roundabout in Raheen Industrial Estate, Limerick.
The driver, a man in his 20s, was arrested at the scene and was brought to Roxboro Road Garda Station.
He was detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984 and has since been charged.
He is due to appear before Kilmallock District Court this evening at 5pm.
