Police say the Golf driver – a 49 year-old – left the scene without checking on the welfare of the four people injured.

He was arrested a short time later on suspicion of dangerous drink driving, failing to stop after a crash and failing to stop for police. The driver remains in police custody.

Officers have appealed for any witnesses who may have seen the Golf being driven dangerous from the Bethesda area at some point between 2.30pm and 3pm that day.
