A garda has been taken to hospital after being injured chasing a stolen car in County Wexford.
A Garda spokesperson said officers investigating the theft of a car from a house in Gorey found it in a housing estate in the early hours of this morning.
They approached the vehicle on foot; however, the occupants then attempted to drive away.
One of the gardaí who tried to stop the car as it was driving away was “carried by the vehicle for a distance before falling”.
He was taken to Wexford General Hospital for treatment for shoulder and arm injuries.
The stolen car was located a short time later.
Two men, aged in their 20s and late teens were arrested and taken to Gorey Garda Station.
The Garda investigation is continuing.
