Gardaí in Donegal Town are continuing their investigations after a car was found abandoned with its passenger door ajar (see our picture) in the middle of the Tullyearl junction, after crashing into road signage on the southern junction located on the main N15 road between Bundoran and Donegal Town.

Investigations into the mysterious crash and who was driving the car are continuing. The 00-DL silver Nissan Almera car appears to have been travelling from the Ballintra/Laghey direction and having crashed into the signage, ended up on the roundabout itself.

The occupant or occupants also appear to have quickly left the scene. When gardaí were alerted to the crash at about 1.30am on Bank Holiday Monday, no trace of the driver or any occupants could be found.

Gardaí say there did not appear to be any major indication from the interior of the car, that the person or persons in the car, had been seriously injured.

The junction has been the scene of several serious accidents over the years.
