Gardaí arrested two men on Wednesday night following a high-speed car chase in north Cork.
Several other cars were hit during the incident which lasted about half an hour. The men were arrested after the vehicle was eventually stopped near New Twopothouse.
On Thursday morning, a Garda spokesman confirmed the men were still in custody. They can be questioned for up to 24 hours before being charged or released.
The road at New Twopothouse was closed for a period but has now reopened.
Gardaí in Mallow are appealing for witnesses.
