A 14-YEAR-OLD boy remains in serious condition in hospital after he was struck by a car in Dublin in a hit-and-run incident yesterday evening.

The boy was struck by a car at the junction of St Eithne Road and Fassaugh Road in Cabra at around 5.40pm yesterday. The vehicle failed to remain at the scene.

Witnesses describe the car as being silver in colour.

Superintendent Sean Ward of Mountjoy Garda Station told this afternoon that one witness has indicated that there may have been a spoiler on the back of the car.

Ward also reiterated the garda appeal for information surrounding yesterday’s incident.

“First of all, we’d like the driver of the vehicle to come forward,” he said. “Anyone who saw the car or a car matching that description in the area yesterday evening is asked to come forward with any information that may help trace the vehicle or its driver.”

“It was a busy time of the day and there should have been a good number of cars and people in the area,” Ward said.

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.
