A MAN HAS died after being hit by a car on Dublin’s M50 motorway.

The incident happened after 11pm last night near the Junction 5 Finglas exit.

The pedestrian, a man in his 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene. Nobody else was injured in the collision.

His body was taken to the city morgue where a post mortem is due to be carried out at a later date.

The road was closed for a time on both sides as a forensic examination was carried out but has since responded. 

Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses to this collision to come forward, in particular, any road users with dashcam footage.
