Two separate investigations are underway after a 7 year old boy was knocked down and killed by a street cleaning vehicle in Dublin.

The young boy was on St. Joseph's Way in Ballymun when he was hit shortly after 4:30pm yesterday afternoon.

The 7-year-old was rushed to Temple Street Children's Hospital in a serious condition but passed away yesterday evening.

Both Gardai and the Health and Safety Authority are investigating.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone who saw the collision to contact them at Ballymun Garda Station or the Garda Confidential Line.

Dublin City Council has extended its "heartfelt sympathies to the family of the young child who passed away yesterday evening following a tragic accident involving a Council Vehicle yesterday."
