GARDAI at Store Street are appealing for witnesses following a serious collision involving a cyclist and a car in Dublin on Monday, August 31.
At approximately 10.30pm a male cyclist aged in his 20s was seriously injured when he was struck by a car on North Wall Quay.
The car involved in the collision failed to remain at the scene. The injured cyclist was taken by Ambulance to the Mater Hospital where his condition is understood to be serious. The scene was examined by Garda forensic collision investigators and the road has since reopened to traffic.
A car understood to have been involved in the incident was recovered at Castleforbes Square a short time later by gardaí. No arrests have been made to date and enquires are ongoing.
Gardaí are appealing for witnesses and in particular to anyone who was in the area of the North Wall Quay, North Wall Avenue, East Wall Road, Sheriff Street Upper, Castleforbes Road or Castleforbes Square between 10.15pm and 10.30pm to come forward.
