GARDAÍ ARE SEEKING to speak to the occupants of a car that failed to remain at the scene after a delivery driver was killed in a two-car crash in Blanchardstown in Dublin in the early hours of this morning.

It’s understood the 33-year-old man had just finished work when he was involved in the crash on Blanchardstown Road South at about 12.35am.

He was taken by ambulance to Connolly Hospital in Blanchardstown, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The Garda Press Office said the occupant or occupants of the second car failed to remain at the scene.

Lane restrictions have been put in place on Blanchardstown Road South at the M3 and will remain in place until around 2pm as investigations take place.

Gardaí are investigating a report that the second car was stolen, according to a source. A spokesperson for the force said they would not be commenting on any such reports.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Blanchardstown Garda Station 01-6667000, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
