Gardai appeal for witnesses after man loses fight for life following suspected road rage attack




Gardaí are set to begin a homicide investigation after a man lost his fight for life after a suspected road attack, reports The Mirror.

The victim, identified by sources as Martin Lynn, 30, had been seriously ill since the attack in Dublin city centre on Sunday morning but died on Tuesday afternoon.

Mr Lynn, who was the office administrator, was walking home in the Whitehall area around 4.30am when he was hit by a driver.

It is known that he was punched once, then fell and hit his head on the pavement – causing serious injuries.

He lives in the Whitehall area and was only a few minutes’ walk from his home when the attack occurred.

He was taken to nearby Beaumont Hospital, a specialist centre in the country for the treatment of severe head injuries, and was in intensive care, but doctors were unable to save him.

Gardaí treated the attack as a serious attack, but it will now be enhanced after Mr. Lynn’s death. Gardaí have yet to make any arrests – and have appealed for witnesses to come forward. A Garda spokesman said the investigation was ongoing at the Suntry Garda station.

He said: “The investigation remains ongoing at Santry Garda station under the direction of a Senior Investigating Officer. A Family Liaison Officer has been appointed,” reports The Mirror.

Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses to this incident to come forward.

“Any road users who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) and were travelling in the Larkhill Road and Collins Avenue areas of Dublin 9 between 1am and 6am on Sunday, 30th July 2023, are asked to make this footage available to Gardaí,” reports The Mirror.
