A person on an electric bicycle was killed in a collision which also involved a truck driver this afternoon at Dolphins Barn Bridge in Dublin.
After the initial emergency response was over (pictured), a bicycle was lying on the carriageway with crime scene markers on the ground around it at Dolphin’s Barn Bridge at the junction with Dolphin Road.
Earlier today, the Dublin Fire Brigade tweeted: “Dolphins Barn Bridge closed to all road users following a serious road traffic collision.”
Just before 8pm, the Garda Press Office said: “Gardaí attended the scene of a fatal road traffic collision involving a truck and an e-bike that occurred at approximately 12:30pm on Monday 6th November 2023 on the Dolphin’s Barn Bridge in Dublin 8.”
“The cyclist was taken to St James’s Hospital with serious injuries and they were later pronounced deceased. No other injuries to persons was reported,” the Garda Press Office said.
Dolphin’s Barn Bridge was closed for hours to allow a technical examination to be conducted by Garda Forensic Collision Investigators.
The Garda spokesperson added: “Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses to this collision to come forward. Any road users who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) and were travelling in the Dolphin’s Barn Bridge area between 12:15pm and 12:45pm are asked to make this footage available to Gardaí.”
