A Monaghan farmer told Northern Sound radio about a hit-and-run in Emyvale when a car ploughed into his herd of cows while the occupants were escaping gardaí.
Farmer Patrick Colton talked local radio station Northern Sound and told them that a black BMW car came flying up the road and met him while moving a herd of 80 dairy cows after milking.
In an attempt to get by, the driver purportedly drove through the herd, seriously injuring a number of cattle, and slightly damaging two other cars.
Some of the cows had their legs broken and have had to be put down.
Gardaí have said no arrests have been made and investigations are ongoing. They did not release a description of the driver or the occupants of the car.
However, Patrick Colton’s brother posted about the incident on facebook and described the occupants of the car as four black males.
