An arrest has been made by Gardai investigating a collision where a motorist drove into a man in his 20s cycling on one of the public roads just outside of Dublin Airport’s perimeter fence last Saturday morning.
A video of the collision was posted online with a passenger recording it and has been shared extensively on social media. A person, who seems to be passenger, is recording as having said “Here we go… watch, watch, watch” before the moment of impact, and then said, “Go, go, gone…”.
Gardai confirmed the arrest this afternoon. Earlier this week they describe the injuries sustained by the person cycling as “non-life threatening”, which can apply to a broad range of injuries.
A spokesperson at the Garda Press Office said: Gardaí investigating a road traffic collision involving a cyclist and car that occurred on the Naul Road, Ballymun, on Saturday 8th October 2022, have arrested a man.”
The spokesperson added: “The man, aged in his teens, has been charged and is to set to appear before the Criminal Courts of Justice this afternoon, Friday, 14th October 2022 at 4pm. Investigations are ongoing.”
