Gardaí appeal for witnesses to fatal road accident

Gardaí in Bailieboro are appealing for witnesses to a single vehicle collision in County Cavan earlier today (Friday), November 24, that claimed the life of a 55-year-old man.

The accident happened at approximately 10.45am. Gardaí along with local fire and emergency services were called to the scene of a single car collision on the Cavan to Ballyjamesduff road near Cross Keys. It is understood the car left the road before it struck a utility pole. The driver and sole occupant of the car, a man in his 50s, was pronounced dead at the scene short time later.

His body was removed to Cavan General Hospital where a post-mortem examination will be carried out. Garda forensic collision investigators are examining the crash site and local diversions are in place. The local Coroner has been notified.
