Gardaí are appealing to anyone with any information on the driver of the 07 D Silver Honda Civic or anyone who saw this vehicle in the area in the hours before the crash.

An incident room has been set up at Mountjoy Garda Station and a referral has been made to the garda ombudsman, GSOC.

A section of the Phibsborough road will remain closed this afternoon while examinations continue.
