A pedestrian was rushed to hospital with serious injuries following an early morning road traffic accident.

The collision occurred at approximately 4.10am on the Drumcondra Raod upper between the junctions of Griffith Ave and Homefarm Road.

A 19-year-old male was rushed to the Mater Hospital where his injuries are described as critical. The male driver of the car was uninjured.

The Swords Road was closed in both directions just before the Griffith Avenue junction to allow garda forensic investigators examine the scene, but it has since reopened.

Heavy traffic delays were experienced as a result.

Witness to the collision are asked to contact the Gardaí in Santry on 01 666 4000, the Garda Confidential line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
