Roads Claim Latest Victims

There's an investigation underway in Co Westmeath after the death in hospital of a road accident victim who was fatally injured nearly two weeks ago.

Gardaí in Ballynacargy are seeking help over what is now a fatal single vehicle road traffic collision.

It occurred at Balroe, shortly after 6.00am on Saturday, 8th August.

At the time, a 25-year-old man was very badly injured when the car - in which he was the sole occupant - collided with a wall.

He was taken to Mullingar General Hospital and subsequently transferred to Beaumont Hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly after 4.00pm yesterday.

To help in their probe, the police have asked that anyone who may have witnessed the collision to contact Ballynacargy Garda Station on 044-9373122.

Meanwhile, in the North, the PSNI have said that no other vehicle was involved either in the overnight fatal accident of a tricycle-style motorbike.

A 55-year-old man died in the crash on the Derrycarne Road near Portadown on Tuesday evening.
