Gardai have appealed for witnesses after a woman was left with serious and life-changing injuries following a hit-and-run in Cork.

The 23-year-old was struck by a car in Magazine Road at around 3.15am on Saturday.

Gardai and emergency services attended the scene.

The injured woman was taken to Cork University Hospital.

Gardai said the vehicle involved was travelling from the Bandon Road into Magazine Road and failed to remain at the scene.

The car involved is believed to be a dark Volkswagen Polo, which may have slight damage to the front and rear of the vehicle.

Gardai at Anglesea Street are appealing for the driver of the vehicle to come forward.

They are also appealing to witnesses, those with video or dashcam footage or anyone with information to contact them on 021 452 2000.
