Gardaí have confirmed that two local men in their 20s were injured after a car mounted a grass verge on the Portnoo to Rosbeg road and struck the pedestrians at around 2.30am on Sunday.

The driver, a 37-year-old from outside the jurisdiction was apprehended at the scene. He was taken to Letterkenny Garda Station and charged with alleged drink driving and alleged dangerous driving.
