Quad driver who tried to undertake struck man and left the scene

Gardaí in Ballyshannon are investigating a road traffic collision which occurred at Lignanornig, Ballintra on Saturday, June 4 at 11.30am.

A farmer was moving cattle from one field to another on a local road and being assisted by a number of other people when a quad travelling from the direction of Ballintra towards Rockhill attempted to undertake one of the vans on the road.

The quad struck one of the men and knocked him down. The man was injured but his injuries are not life threatening. The driver of the quad then left the scene and traveled back in the direction they had come from. 

Garda Gráinne Doherty appealed to anyone who may have seen the quad on the road in question to contact gardaí in Ballyshannon on 071 98 58530. 

Garda Doherty said that quads and quad drivers are subject to the same rules and regulations as every other road user and warned that they can fatally injure someone.
