Officers attended Lowry’s Lane, just off the Glen Road, close to the entrance to the Pairc Colmcille GAA pitch, shortly after midnight on Saturday, April 3.

A 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old girl who were sitting on the footpath at the time of the incident were taken to hospital for treatment for their injuries, which are not believed to be serious.

Constable Steven Toner said: “We can confirm as yet no persons have been arrested in relation to the incident and police are actively seeking to identify the driver of this vehicle.

“We are appealing for witnesses to the collision or anyone who recalls seeing a white vehicle with a male driver prior to the collision, to get in touch as soon as possible to assist the investigation.

The car reportedly had a learner’s ‘L’ plate on the rear window.
