Man in serious condition following hit-and-run in Dublin

A man is in a serious condition in hospital following a hit-and-run in Dublin.

The incident happened on Cork Street near the Coombe Hospital at around 10.15pm last night.

A 20-year-old pedestrian was struck by a car and the injured man was removed by ambulance to St James's Hospital.

His injuries are understood to be serious.

The car involved failed to stop and continued travelling in the direction of Dolphin's Barn.

The scene is preserved for examination by Garda forensic collision investigators and local diversions are in place.

Investigating Gardaí are appealing to the driver of the car to come forward.

They are also appealing to witnesses or those with video or dash cam footage from the scene to contact them.

Local Labour councillor Rebecca Moynihan says the driver must come forward.

"I would appeal for anyone who saw anything or heard anything or who has any information to come forward," said Cllr Moynihan.

"I think it is one of the most cowardly things to not stop when we do something like that to see if the person is ok.

"The driver of the vehicle might be in shock as well but I think it is important that he or she come forward and give a full statement to the gardaí."

She also wished the young man a full recovery.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Kevin Street Garda Station 01 666 9400 of the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
