Gardaí are appealing for the public to come forward with Dash Cam footage from the incident on Monday night

A man in his forties was struck by a car a number of times on Monday morning, and is currently receiving treatment at James Connolly Memorial Hospital.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses following incidents of dangerous driving and criminal damage which occurred on Monday morning, 27th February 2023 in Lucan.

At approximately 7.35am on the Lucan Road, a male, driving a black Opel Astra, got out of his vehicle.

The male stood on the bonnet of the vehicle behind and kicked the windscreen, causing extensive damage to the vehicle. No injuries were reported. 

A second incident occurred shortly afterwards at approximately 7.38am involving a black Opel Astra and a second vehicle.

The two vehicles came to a stop at traffic lights on Weir Bridge in Lucan. The driver from one of these vehicles left his vehicle at the stop and went to engage with the driver of black Opel Astra.

The male driver was then struck by the black Opel Astra a number of times. His injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed either of these incidents to come forward.

They are also appealing to anyone with camera footage (including motorists with dash cam) from the area at this time, to make it available to them.

It is believed the black Opel Astra had fully black wheels and had silver chrome on the boot. 

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Lucan Garda Station on 01 666 7300, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda station.
