Gardaí seek witnesses after man on bicycle injured in County Tipperary

Gardai are seeking wittinesses to what is believed to be a single vehicle collision — involving a bicycle only — in Nenagh, County Tipperary this afternoon.

Sean Brosnan at the Garda press office said: “Gardaí are investigating a serious single vehicle road traffic collision involving a bicycle that occurred at approximately 3:20pm on Wednesday, 18th November, 2020, at Sarsfield Street, Nenagh, County Tipperary.”

“The cyclist, a man in his 40s, was taken to University Hospital Limerick with serious injuries,” he said. “The road is currently closed pending a technical examination by Forensic Collision Investigators. Local diversions are in place.”

“Gardaí at Nenagh are appealing for any witnesses to come forward. Gardaí are also appealing for any road users who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) who were travelling on Sarsfield Street from 3pm to 3:20pm to make this footage available to Gardaí,” the statement from the press office added.

Gardaí are asking that anyone with information is asked to contact Nenagh Garda Station on 067 50450, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.
