Man Dies Following Hit-And-Run

A man has died following a hit-and-run incident in Dublin.

The victim, named as 28-year-old Karl Robertson was out jogging when he was hit by a van on Hazlewood Drive in Artane at around 9.50pm on Wednesday night, 08 March.

He was taken to hospital but has since died from his injuries.

A man in his 30s has presented himself to gardaí and is assisting with inquiries.

Detectives are also trying to trace another man who arrived at the scene and told people he saw what happened, however he left before gardaí arrived.

Anyone with information on the incident, or who saw a white Renault Megane van in the area of Coolock or Artane on Wednesday night, are asked to contact Coolock Garda Station on 01 666 42 00, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any garda station.
