A SECOND MAN has died from injuries sustained in a car crash on the Dublin quays in the early hours of yesterday morning.

The men were travelling in the stolen taxi along the quays when the crash happened at around 2.40am at a lock bridge close to the Convention Centre. No other vehicles were involved.

A garda spokesperson confirmed to TheJournal.ie this evening that a man in his 20s injured in the incident died in hospital at the Mater this afternoon. Another young man – also in his 20s – died yesterday, while a third man also in the car received only minor injuries.

Gardaí at Store Street are investigating, and there have been no arrests as yet.

The death brings to five the total number killed as a result of road crashes over the Bank Holiday weekend, following fatalities in Donegal and in Meath.
