GSOC is investigating a crash in which a motorcyclist was critically injured after hitting a Garda patrol car. The man – in his early 20s – has been taken to Beaumont Hospital with head injuries. Just before 5 o’clock this morning, a motorbike and a garda patrol car collided at the junction of Sean McDermott Street and Buckingham Street in Summerhill in Dublin 1. The motorcyclist – a man in his early 20s – was critically injured in the crash and has been transferred to Beaumont Hospital with serious head injuries. A team of investigators from the Garda Ombudsman Commission has examined the scene because a Garda patrol car was involved – as is normal procedure in caes of death or serious harm. GSOC is also appealing for any witnesses to this morning’s crash to come forward.
