Gardaí at Henry Street, Limerick are appealing for witnesses following a single-vehicle fatal traffic collision in Co Clare.

At approximately 3am a man in his 30s was fatally injured when the car he was driving left the road and struck a wall. The collision occurred on the R465 at Roo East between Ardnacrusha and Broadford. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later. It’s understood he was the sole occupant of the car.
