Gardai are renewing their appeal for information in relation to a hit-and-run collision that left the victim in a serious condition.

The incident occurred in the early hours of December 27 last year on the R128 Skerries to Loughshinny Road.

Callum 'Cal' Grimes (27), was found unconscious on the side of the road in Loughshinny, north Dublin, by a passer-by at about 8.30am that morning.

He sustained serious injuries when he was apparently hit by a vehicle and remains in a serious condition in Beaumont Hospital.

Investigating Gardaí are appealing to the driver of a blue Volkswagen Transporter van who may have information relating to this incident to contact them.

Gardaí are also appealing to anyone to may have seen this van in the vicinity of Skerries in the early hours of the 27th of December 2016, to contact Balbriggan Garda Station on 01 8020510, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.

Mr Grimes is believed to be from the Rush area and it is understood he was out socialising at a bar in Skerries about 5km away as part of busy St Stephen’s Day festivities.

It is believed he was unable to get a taxi and started walking home along the narrow road.

Some broken glass and plastic from a car was also found at the scene, leading to initial speculation that the victim may have been hit by a car that failed to stop at the scene.
