Gardai investigating van driver crushing bicycles parked outside Dublin school

Gardai are investigating an incident yesterday where a van driver ran into and crushed parked bicycles parked outside Dublin school.

The collision happened on the Old Dublin Road. The road runs parallel to and is bypassed by the N11, but it is still a through road between Stillorgan Village and Oatlands College.

It is understood that the van driver remained at the scene. At this time, it is unclear what was the cause of the collision.

The Garda press office said: “Gardaí attended the scene of a traffic collision that occurred at approximately 11:20am on Monday, 20th September 2021 at Old Dublin Road in Stillorgan, Dublin 18. A van collided with a number of stationary bicycles during this incident.”

The press office added there were no injuries were reported following this collision and that the investigation is ongoing at this time.

  1. Old Dublin Road was originally part of Stillorgan Road until the Stillorgan Bypass was built, although I don’t think it was renamed until the late 1990s.
