TWO gardai were treated for minor injuries and shock after their patrol car was in a collision with another vehicle, writes David Raleigh.

The 2013-registered patrol car collided with a car driven by a civilian in Kilmallock, Co Limerick, at about 11am yesterday.

A male and female garda were taken from the scene by ambulance to University Hospital Limerick. Their injuries were "not serious", a spokesman said.

"There was no chase or anything sinister involved. It was just a minor crash," he said.

A local source said at least one guard had to be cut from the patrol car by the Kilmallock fire brigade.
