A WOMAN has been charged in connection with a alleged hit and run incident in Limerick city centre during which four people were injured.

A male pedestrian (33) was seriously injured while three women sustained non-life threatening injuries. All four were treated at University Hospital Limerick afterwards.

A major garda investigation is continuing and the woman who was being questioned has now been charged and is due to appear in court this Monday morning.

Investigating gardaí have renewed their appeal to anyone who may have witnessed the collision to come forward.
