Teenager Critical Following Collision With Horse In Tipperary.

Cahir Gardaí are appealing for witnesses to a serious collision between a motor vehicle and a horse, which has left a teenage driver in a critical condition in hospital.

Gardaí attended the scene of the collision, which occurred at approximately 11.55pm last night on the M8 at Cahir Abbey Upper, Cahir, Co Tipperary, between Junctions 11 (Cahir South) and Junction 10 (Cahir North).

We understand that a loose horse wandered out onto the motorway into the path of an oncoming motor vehicle.

According to Gardaí the male driver, who was in his late teens, sustained serious injuries and was removed to Cork University Hospital, where he remains in a critical condition.

Last night and this morning diversions were in place as forensic collision investigators conducted an examination of the collision scene.

Today, Gardaí are appealing to any person or road user who were travelling in the area with cameras (including vehicles with dash camera footage), to make same available to Cahir Gardaí.

Persons with information can contact Cahir Garda station at Tel. No.: 052 7445630, the Garda Confidential Line on Tel. No.: 1800 666 111 or indeed any Garda station.
