GARDAÍ IN NORTH Dublin have appealed for anyone who may have witnessed a “serious hit and run” incident last Saturday morning to come forward.

The accident, which happened at approximately 12.45am on 9 July on Strand Road, Baldoyle, left a 26-year-old male cyclist with “serious leg injuries”.

“What was described as a black Volvo S40, with a 07D registration, came down the Strand Road in the direction of Main Street Baldoyle and struck the male pedal cyclist,” a Garda spokesperson said in a statement.

The man in question was cycling home from work. He was knocked to the ground and sustained serious leg injuries.

He was subsequently removed to Beaumont Hospital where he continues to be treated for his injuries.

The driver of the car failed to stop at the scene.

“This car travelled along Strand Road, Baldoyle onto Main Street, turned left onto Moyne Road and again turned left into the Castlemoyne Estate,” the spokesperson said.

The car was abandoned in the Castlemoyne Estate. The car’s two front tyres had blown out and the car was being driven on rims at the time it was abandoned.

Anyone who witnessed the collision or who can assist with the investigation is asked to contact Howth Garda Station on 01 6664900, the Garda Confidential Telephone Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.
