An 18-year-old man remains in hospital today after being hit by a Luas tram in Tallaght.
The incident happened near the Cheeverstown stop on the Red Line at around 8.30pm last night.
The man was crossing the "segregated tracks", which is off-limits to pedestrians, between the Cheeverstown and Citywest stops, when he was struck.
A Luas spokeswoman said he was unconscious but "stable" when he was brought to Tallaght Hospital.
His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
The incident occurred a day after mother-of-one Yao Webster (35) was killed in a freak accident after a car collided with a Luas tram at the intersection of Abbey Street and Jervis Street.
