A young man has died more than two weeks after being seriously injured when a car struck a group of pedestrians on a Dublin footpath.

A woman driving a convertible Saab lost control of the car on Adelaide Road on August 22 at 6.15pm and the car mounted a pavement and struck four young men.

Benjamin Renard (24), a French national working in the capital for the past three years, died of his injuries in Beaumont Hospital ye sterday.

He was rushed from the crash scene to St James's Hospital and later transferred to Beaumont Hospital for treatment for head injuries. Family members travelled from France and had kept a vigil at his hospital bedside.

Mr Renard worked as an account manager at the LinkedIn company on Dublin's southside.

He had studied at Dublin City University until 2014, when he was awarded a BA in global business, marketing and sales and had previously earned a BSc degree in France.

There were glowing tributes from friends and colleagues on social media last night.

Sharon McCooey, head of LinkedIn Ireland, said: "After a brave fight, he has sadly passed away.

"We are doing all that we can to support his family and friends during this most difficult of times."

Mr Renard had worked annually on a telethon for the past seven years, helping to raise money for a muscular dystrophy charity in France.

The cras h on the busy street in Dublin 2 resulted in the silver convertible flipping over on to its side in the impact near the junction of Adelaide Road and Harcourt Road.

The driver and one of the pedestrians were taken to St Vincent's Hospital. Another of the young men was also taken to St James's Hospital and a fourth man was transferred to Tallaght Hospital.

Several emergency services vehicles rushed to the scene and witnesses told how at least one of the men was treated by paramedics at the scene.
