A WOMAN HAS died and another was seriously injured after being hit by a car in west Dublin this morning.

It happened on Hartstown Road in Clonsilla at around 2.40am.

Two female pedestrians in their 40s were taken to Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown after being struck.

One of the women was later pronounced dead, while the second remains in a serious condition.

The driver of the car, a man in his 20s, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of drink driving and taken to Blanchardstown Garda Station.

He was later charged and released to appear before a sitting of Blanchardstown District Court later this month.

Garda Forensic Collision Investigators have examined the scene and the road has since reopened to traffic.  The Coroner has also been notified.

Gardaí investigating the circumstances of the collision are appealing for witnesses. They are particularly appealing to anyone who was in the vicinity of Hartstown Road at the time of the collision to contact them at Blanchardstown Garda Station 01-6667000 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
