A cyclist has been rushed to hospital this evening after he was hit by a cement truck in Lucan, Co Dublin.

The man (60s) is understood to have been cycling on the Newcastle Road when he was hit by the HGV at about 6.10pm. 

He has since been transported to Connolly Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Gardai are currently at the scene and have advised motorists to expect delays and that local diversions have been put in place.

A garda spokesperson told Independent.ie: “This was a RTC between a truck and pedal cyclist.  

“The male pedal cyclist (early 60s) received non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown.  

“The driver of the truck was uninjured,” the spokesperson said.
