The fatal accident happened at 10.30pm yesterday, as the woman was crossing the road at the Golden Bridge Luas stop in Inchicore, Dublin.

She was taken to nearby St James' Hospital where she was pronounced dead. 

According to witnesses, the female pedestrian  was hit by a dark coloured car, possibly a Ford Focus with a 08 or 09 registration. 

When the woman was hit, the driver failed to stop, and left in the direction of the Naas Road.
