AN elderly woman was hospitalised yesterday evening after she was struck by a motorcyclist as she disembarked from a bus in south Dublin.

The woman was crossing the road near Ballinteer Avenue at approximately 7.50pm yesterday evening when she was struck by a motorbike.

The woman, who is in her early 70s, was taken to St James Hospital with serious injuries, according to gardai.

She was then transferred to Beaumont Hospital last night.

It is believed that the woman was visiting a relative around the time she was knocked down.

The motorcyclist, a man in his early 30s, was taken to St Vincent's Hospital with minor injuries.

Gardai in Dundrum are investigating the collision.

The scene was examined by Garda forensic collision investigators and enquiries are ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dundrum Garda Station 01-6665600 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
