20-year-old knocked off bicycle in “critical condition” after collision involving truck driver

A man in 20s knocked was off the bicycle he was cycling and left in “critical condition” after collision involving truck driver in the south Dublin Port yesterday.

A spokesperson at the Garda Press Office said: “Gardaí investigating a serious road traffic collision involving a lorry and a bicycle that occurred at approximately 4pm on Wednesday, 9th November, 2022, on the South Bank Road at the junction with the Whitebank Road in Dublin 4, are appealing for witnesses.”

“The male cyclist, a man in his 20s, was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital where he is currently in a critical condition. No other injuries to persons was reported,” the spokesperson said.

The Garda Press Office said that the scene was preserved for an examination which Forensic Collision Investigators conducted.

“Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses to this collision to come forward. Any road users who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) who were travelling on the South Bank Road or the Whitebank Road between 3:30pm and 4pm are asked to make this footage available to Gardaí.”

Gardai said that anyone with information is asked to contact Irishtown Garda Station on 01 6669600, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.

IrishCycle.com is reader-funded journalism. That means it's funded by readers like you.

Subscription drive update: IrishCycle.com reached its target of 270 subscribers by the end of August -- thank you to all who have helped! Our new target is to have 300 subscribers by the end of 2022 -- originally this was hoped to be exceeded by the first year of running the site full time (end of October).

If you can help push IrishCycle.com above 300 subscribers, please subscribe today for €5 or more. If you have already done so -- thank you!

Please remember, every month there's a natural drop-off in subscriptions due to people getting new cards, cards stolen, Revolut not topped up etc.

IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.

There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.

I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.

The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers
