A FOURTEEN YEAR OLD boy has died in hospital after being critically injured in a hit-and-run accident in Dublin on Friday.

Conor Hickey from Attracta Road in Cabra passed away on Saturday night Temple Street Children’s hospital, after he was struck by a car at the junction of St Eithne Road and Fassaugh Road in Cabra at around 5.40pm on Friday. The vehicle failed to remain at the scene.

Witnesses told gardaí that the car was silver in colour, and one indicated that it may have had a spoiler attached.

Gardaí have seized CCTV footage from the area and will be checking through it to try to identify the car involved.

Anyone who may have any information about the incident in Cabra yesterday is urged to contact gardaí at Mountjoy Garda Station on 01 666 8600, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111, or any garda station.
