A seven-year-old boy has died after being struck by a truck in north Dublin.

The child was hit at St Joseph’s Way in Ballymun shortly after 4.30pm on Sunday afternoon.

He died later in Temple Street Children’s Hospital.

The driver of the truck, a 30-year-old man, was treated in the Mater Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The road remained closed on Sunday evening to facilitate a Garda examination.

The Health and Safety Authority was notified about the fatal incident.

Gardai have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
