Gardaí investigating a fatal road traffic collision on the M7 in Co Tipperary yesterday have renewed their appeal for witnesses.
A man in his 70s was killed while two other people were injured in the collision which happened at around 2.00pm in the southbound lanes of the motorway just 500 metres on the Nenagh side of junction 27 Birdhill.
Investigating Gardaí are appealing for any persons who travelled the M7 motorway between Dublin and Limerick on the afternoon of 16th January 2018, in particular travelling between Nenagh and Limerick around 2pm, to come forward.
Gardaí wish for any motorists travelling that route that had a dashcam in use at the time to contact them.
Any persons who can assist with this investigation are asked to contact Gardaí at Nenagh Garda Station on (067) 50450 or the Garda Confidential Helpline 1800 666 111.
The road remained closed overnight and was reopened at around 3 o’clock this afternoon once a forensic collision investigation was concluded.
Motorway maintenance staff also spent some time clearing an amount of debris from the scene before it was declared safe to take traffic again.
