N3 reopened after fatal collision claims life of pedestrian (84)

The N3 has been reopened after a fatal collision this morning.

The N3 between Cavan and Virginia has been reopened after a fatal collision this morning that claimed the life of an 84-year-old woman thought to be waiting for a bus.

It is understood that the woman was either at or making her way to the bus stop when a car had to swerve to avoid her but a following HiAce van was unsighted and knocked down the woman.

The tragedy occurred at Lisgrey and the woman was transferred to Cavan General Hospital for serious injuries from the collision but she was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

The stretch of road at Lisgrey has long been an issue for councillors demanding that more safety measures be put in place on the stretch, at which it is believed there have been six fatalities and numerous serious injuries from collisions in recent years.

Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses, or anyone with information to contact them at Bailieborough Garda Station on (042) 966 5102.
