Drivers cause trail of destruction in Olhão

Several cars were damaged in Olhão in the early hours of Saturday morning in what authorities believe to be two separate cases of dangerous driving rampages. In both cases, the drivers fled from the scene.

The first happened on the town’s Avenida da República, where a car is believed to have crashed into three other parked cars shortly after midnight. The crash also destroyed a garden bench, an electricity post, signposting and a rubbish bin.

Three other vehicles were also damaged two hours later in a similar incident in the residential area of Zona Alta.

Both incidents are believed to have caused several thousands of euros in damages.

Police are investigating.
