Gardaí investigate Castlemaine hit and run which resulted in thousands of euro worth of damage

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses of a hit and run in Castlemaine which resulted thousands of euro worth of damage.

The incident occurred on the Tralee to Castlemaine road on August 31st at 6pm.

A black Toyota Land Cruiser with a flat-bed trailer attached which was transporting a red quad bike was involved.

The Toyota drove quickly up behind vehicles which were turning right and the trailer jack-knifed, causing significant damage to fencing.

Garda Carragh Kelly says CCTV shows the vehicle did not enter Castlemaine but turned around to survey the damage caused.

Witnesses are being asked to contact Tralee or Castlemaine garda stations with any information.
