Man arrested over county Kilkenny hit-and-run which left victim with life-changing injuries
A man has been arrested in relation to a serious hit-and-run incident in county Kilkenny which has left the victim with life-changing injuries.
The incident occurred on the main Callan to Kilkenny Road at Ballymack Cross at around 1.10am last Saturday morning.
Two male pedestrians were out walking when a car suddenly struck one of them, causing serious head and leg injuries which a local Garda spokesperson has described as “lifechanging”.
Last Sunday afternoon a car was found burnt out on the R695 between Callan and Kilmangah. Gardai believe this is the vehicle that hit the victim, a young man.
Kilkenny gardai arrested and questioned a man in relation to the incident earlier this week. He has since been
released and a file has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Gardai have re-issued their appeal for anyone with information about the incident to come forward.
A local Garda spokesperson told KilkennyNow.ie: “We are looking for any witnesses or motorists who may have dashcam footage of the Ballymack Cross area between 12am and 3am on Saturday morning to contact either Callan Garda Station on 056 777 5106 or Kilkenny Garda Station on 056 777 5000.”
