They tried to kill us, says Dana husband
THE husband of presidential candidate Dana Rosemary Scallon has claimed a tyre of their campaign car was deliberately damaged in an attempt to "injure or murder us".
Gardai were last night investigating the allegation by Damien Scallon.
But a number of experts, who studied a photograph of the damage inflicted on the tyre, said they believed it had been caused by driving following a puncture.
Dana, pictured with her car and the tyre, was asleep in the back seat of the Peugeot 508, when it suffered a tyre blowout on the M4 motorway, near Kilcock, Co Kildare, on Tuesday night.
Her lawyers later filed an official complaint with gardai of criminal damage to the tyre.
