GARDAÍ ARE searching for four people who they believe were in the car which struck and killed a Dublin cyclist.
Thiago Cortes, who is originally from Brazil and who worked as a Deliveroo cyclist, had just made a delivery when he struck by a car on North Wall Quay at around 10.30pm on Monday, 31 August.
The car which struck him failed to remain at the scene, and Mr Cortes was found by a passerby who called the emergency services.
Mr Cortes was rushed to the Mater Hospital in a serious condition, but the 28-year-old tragically passed away from his injuries yesterday, 2 September.
The car was later found abandoned nearby at Castleforbes Square, and a full Garda investigation was opened into the driver and occupants and the accident which left Mr Cortes with catastrophic injuries.
It is understood that the car in question, a 2005-registered Ford Focus, did not have insurance, tax or NCT, and was driving at speed when they hit the cyclist.
Gardaí have confirmed they are looking for four people who were in the car which killed Mr Cortes, and are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
Gardaí are particularly appealing to anyone who was in the area of the North Wall Quay, North Wall Avenue, East Wall Road, Sheriff Street Upper, Castleforbes Road or Castleforbes Square between 10.15pm and 10.30pm to come forward.
They are also appealing to road users with camera footage (including dash-cam) from the area at the time to make it available to them.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the incident room at Store Street Garda station on 01 6668000 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
