A man in his 60s has died and his teenage daughter injured after they were struck by a vehicle in Dublin last night.

The incident occurred on the Newcastle Road while the man and 17-year-old girl were out walking in Lucan at around 9pm.

The man was treated at the scene but was pronounced dead a short time later.

The girl's injuries, while described as serious, are not thought to be life threatening.

The driver of the vehicle was taken to hospital suffering from shock.

The road from Grand Canal Bridge to the New Nangor Road has now reopened.

Garda Forensic Collision Investigators remain at the scene.

Anyone with information have been asked to contact Clondalkin Garda Station on 01 666 7600 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.

The man is the fourth pedestrian to be killed over the past four days.
