Gardai confirm a man (40s) sadly dies after single vehicle crash

A man died in the early hours of this morning following a single-vehicle road traffic collision in Claremorris, Co Mayo, Gardaí have confirmed, reports The Mirror.

The incident occurred shortly after midnight on Wednesday night, into Thursday morning, when the driver of a van passed away due to injuries suffered in the collision, which did not involve any other vehicles, on the N60 at Ballygowan.

The man’s body has since been removed to Mayo University Hospital’s mortuary, where a post-mortem is due to take place, reports The Mirror.

Gardaí are this morning appealing for witnesses who may have been in the area between Claremorris Road and Ballygowan Bridge from 12am to 12.30am to come forward, particularly those who may potentially have dash-cam footage.

A Garda spokesperson confirmed to The Irish Mirror: “The collision, involving a van, occurred at approximately 12.25am. The driver of the van, a man aged in his 40s, later passed away from his injuries. His body has since been removed to the mortuary at Mayo University Hospital where a post-mortem will take place in due course. A technical examination of the scene has been completed by Garda Forensic Collision investigators and the road has re-opened this morning,” reports The Mirror.
