A man has been arrested after the occupants of a car fled the scene of a crash in Camlough on Friday evening.
Police received a report of a single-vehicle road traffic collision on the Camlough Road – close to the junction of Chancellors Road – shortly before 8.50pm.
It was reported a red Starlit Toyota had collided with a fence in the area. No one was in the vehicle on the arrival of officers.
Police received information that three men had left the car following the collision and a search was carried out.
Officers later arrested a 24-year-old man on suspicion of a number of driving offences including using a motor vehicle without insurance, failing to remain and report where an accident has occurred causing damage, driving without due care and attention and driving whilst disqualified.
Police have this evening (Saturday) released the man on bail to allow for further enquiries.
Anyone who noticed anything suspicious in the area or who has mobile or dash-cam footage that could help our investigation is asked to contact police on 101, quoting reference number 1787 of 04/08/23.
