A man has died after an incident which involved him crashing his car into a steel barrier in Co Dublin.

After crashing his car, the man in his 30s, broke into two homes on Temple Manor Drive, Limekiln Avenue, Greenhills, Walkinstown, Dublin 12, shortly after 9pm.

Gardaí arrived at the scene and when the man became aggressive, gardaí were required to arrest and restrain him.

As he was being removed from the house he became unresponsive and medical assistance was called.

He was taken to Tallaght Hospital and was later pronounced dead. A post mortem examination will be carried out today by the State Pathologist Professor Marie Cassidy.

The matter have been referred to the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission.

The crash scene and the house where the man was arrested have been sealed off for a technical examination by Garda Crime Scene Examiners and Garda Forensic Collision Investigators.
