Gardai appealing for information after car hits parked vehicle and left abandoned in garden

Portlaoise Gardaí are appealing to the public for their assistance relating to an alleged dangerous driving incident.

This is believed to have occurred on Sunday last, October 27, between 9pm and 10pm and involved a red 2008 Audi A4 with yellow plates on the back.

The dangerous driving started in Durrow town and continued out the Ballyragget road as far as Ballyragget and back towards Durrow and Attanagh and into Ballyouskill.

When in Ballyouskill, the Audi collided with a parked car and was left abandoned in the garden of a private house.

The driver then fled the scene.

The vehicle has been seized and Gardai are particularly interested in speaking to the few people that driver overtook along the way especially anyone in Ballyragget area that may have witnessed this.

Anyone with information can contact 0578674150 and seek to speak to Garda Cooper.
