A MAN ARRESTED after a woman died following a hit-and-run in Donegal in the early hours of yesterday morning has been released without charge. 

Gardaí and emergency services attended the scene on the N15 at Townparks, Lifford at around 2.45am yesterday.

The victim (34) was taken from the scene by ambulance to University Hospital Letterkenny where she was later pronounced dead.

Gardaí say it is understood the pedestrian was struck by a white van that failed to remain at scene.

A man in his 40s was arrested yesterday afternoon. 

The arrested man has since been released without charge. 

A file is now being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecution. 

Following yesterday’s arrest investigating gardaí renewed their appeal for witnesses to come forward and for those with video footage (including dash cam) from the scene and along this route to make it available to investigators.
