At approximately 9pm on 13 June 2021 Gardaí were notified of a serious Road Traffic Collision at the Junction of Sheriff Street Upper and East Road/ New Wapping Street, Dublin 1 involving a vehicle and a pedal cyclist. The vehicle involved failed to remain at the scene. Gardaí and members of the Dublin Fire Brigade including Paramedics responded to the Road Traffic Collision. 

The male pedal cyclist was removed from the scene by Paramedics and was conveyed by ambulance to the Mater Hospital and then to Beaumount Hospital for the serious nature of his head injuries.
