Dundrum Town Centre
A Garda hit by a speeding car at Dundrum Town Centre in Dublin is being treated for significant leg injuries.
He was dragged along the road yesterday evening while trying to stop a car suspected of being involved in a theft.
The Blue Fiat Bravo Hatchback was later found by Gardaí at Kilcarrig Close in Tallaght.
In a statement, Gardaí said; "It's understood Gardaí and security staff were attempting to apprehend the occupant of a car when it fled from the scene at speed colliding with one of the Garda members."
The officer, who is in his 30s, was taken to hospital and has since been discharged.
His injuries are not life threatening.
No arrests have been made, and Gardai are appealing for witnesses to come forward.
