Five men arrested after car crashes in Kildare following garda pursuit

Five men have been arrested after a car crashed in Kildare following a garda pursuit.

As a result of ongoing investigations into criminal activity in the Leinster region, Gardaí intercepted a vehicle on Tuesday evening in County Meath. The vehicle failed to stop for Gardaí and a managed containment operation ensued.

This operation concluded shortly before 8pm when the offending vehicle was involved in a single vehicle road traffic collision on the Newbridge Road in Naas, County Kildare. Five males were arrested at the scene.

Two men, aged in their 20s, are currently being detained at Naas Garda Station under the provisions of Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act, 2007.

Three men, aged in their late teens, 20s and 40s, were taken to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Investigations are ongoing.
