Another Death Brings To 8 Number Killed On Tipperary Roads 2019

Eighth Road Tragedy In Six Months In Co. Tipperary

One man has been killed, and three others injured, in a single-vehicle collision here in north Co. Tipperary.

The collision occurred near Nenagh, on the Portroe to Garrykennedy road, at approximately 5.30am, in the early hours of this morning.

The male victim is understood to be in his 20s, and was pronounced dead at the crash scene.

Three other males; two aged in their 20s and one aged in his late teens, were taken to University Hospital Limerick, where we understand they escaped with non life-threatening injuries.

The scene has now been examined by Garda forensic personnel and the roadway has been re-opened to normal traffic. However, Gardaí are appealing for anyone with information, particularly those who may have travelled in that area at the time of the accident, and who may have dash cam footage; to contact Gardaí in Nenagh on Telephone No. 067-50450.

Garda figures show Tipperary had the greatest number of road fatalities, totalling 11, in 2018. The tragic death this morning now brings to 8, the number of persons who have lost their lives on Tipperary roads so far in the first 6 months of 2019.
