A previous court sitting heard that two gardaí in the patrol car were injured and three passengers in the car allegedly driven by Cormac Murphy of St. Killian’s Park, Whitecross, were also taken to hospital as a precaution following the second collision.

Mr. Murphy is charged with five counts of dangerous driving at Crowe Street, Jocelyn Street, the Point Road, Barrack Street and Red Cow, Dundalk on February 6th last.
