A woman in Drimnagh was left in a serious condition after being injured in a hit and run incident involving a scrambler at a Luas stop yesterday afternoon.

Gardai and emergency services were called to the Drimnagh Luas Stop on Davitt Road at approximately 1:45pm on January 30, when the woman, who is in her late 20s, was struck by a scrambler being driven by a youth.

The impact saw the youth and the scrambler being thrown into the nearby canal. The young person is understood to have then managed to swim to the side of the canal, before fleeing the scene on another motorbike.

The woman was taken to St James’s Hospital, where her injuries have been described as serious.

Gardai are now appealing for witnesses to the incident to come forward.

A Garda spokesperson said: “Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses to the collision to contact them or any road users who were in the area and may have dash cam footage of the incident or at the time of the incident, to contact them at Sundrive Road Garda Station on 01 – 6666600, the Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.”
