The incident occurred during the early hours of Saturday morning.

Gardaí are searching for a driver involved in a hit-and-run in Cork at the weekend that left a young woman with "serious, life-changing injuries."

According to a spokesperson for An Garda Síochána, a 23-year-old female pedestrian was struck by a car on Magazine Road, Cork at around 3.15am on Saturday morning (26 October).

She was later taken to Cork University Hospital.

The car was travelling from the Bandon Road onto Magazine Road when the incident occurred.
