THE PSNI is investigating a road traffic incident involving one of its own vehicles in Monkstown over the weekend.

Police said the Ford Focus patrol car and a Mazda 3 collided close to the Old Carrick Road junction with Monkstown Road shortly before 11pm on Saturday, April 28.

The driver of the Mazda is understood to have sustained a minor shoulder injury, while no police officers were injured.

A PSNI spokesperson said the patrol vehicle was responding to a call, and it’s understood the blue lights were on at the time of the collision.
