A female pedestrian has died and two others were injured after a fatal road traffic collision in Dun Laoghaire this morning. 

The woman who was in her early 70s was fatally injured following a collision with a truck at approximately 10am at the junction of George's Street Lower and Convent Lane.

She was removed from the scene to St Columcille's Hospital, Loughlinstown where a post mortem will take place in due course.

Two men who were in the truck, the driver and his passenger who are both in their late 30s, were treated at the scene for their injuries that are not believed to be life threatening.
