The driver, sought by the police for reckless driving, fled the scene

The driver struck the victim, fled the scene in the car, and avoided being apprehended by gardas. The vehicle, a 2007 Silver Honda Civic, was left behind in Phibsboro, not far from the scene of the collision, however it was later discovered by investigating garda.

The car had not been recorded as stolen. It had only recently changed owners, and the previous owner’s name was still included on the registration. Garda authorities have confirmed that the car was sold, and they are now looking for the new owner and maybe persons related to him for an interview.

The woman was obviously extremely badly hurt when garda and paramedics arrived on the site, according to sources, and attempts to save her were unsuccessful. The road was closed for a forensic investigation after she was declared deceased at the spot.
