Appeal for dash cam footage after death of man struck by car

The pedestrian was fatally injured in an early morning crash on Monday.

GARDAÍ HAVE RENEWED their appeal in relation to a fatal road traffic collision which occurred in Arklow, Co Wicklow on Monday.

A pedestrian, a man in his 40s, was killed when he was struck by a car at about 2.20am.

Gardaí are looking to speak to anyone who was in the Coolgreaney Road or Ballyduff Road (also known as Johnstown Road) area of Arklow between 1.30am and 2.30am on Monday.

Speaking at Arklow Garda Station, Inspector Ronan Lawlor said: “This collision occurred on a wet night in the earlier hours of a bank holiday Monday.

“We would like to speak to anyone who was near Coolgreaney Road in the vicinity of St Saviour’s Church, Ballyraine Bridge or Ballyduff Road, which is the M11 underpass. We would particularly like to speak to anyone who may have a dash cam on their vehicle.”
