Man Dead Following Road Crash In South Tipperary

A male motorist, understood to be in his 30’s, has tragically lost his life in a car accident here in Co Tipperary. The incident happened in the early hours of this morning.

Two passengers, a male and female, both in their 20s, also travelling in the vehicle have been injured and while they have been removed to hospital, their injuries, thankfully, are not believed to be life-threatening.

We understand that the accident occurred sometime around 3:00am this morning, on the N24 at Killaloan on the outskirts of Clonmel town. While no other vehicle was involved, it is understood the car, a silver coloured VW Polo, left the road, before striking a wall.

Gardaí were summoned to the scene and the driver of the vehicle was quickly removed to South Tipperary General Hospital, where he has since been pronounced dead.

The road currently remains closed to traffic and local diversions are in place.
