Man, 60s, dies after car crashes into stationary vehicle in Limerick

Gardaí are investigating a three-vehicle crash in Co Limerick last night in which a man in his 60s was fatally injured.

The crash happened on O’Curry Street, Limerick last night at approximately 9.40pm.

Both stationary vehicles were unoccupied at the time of the collision.

Garda Forensic Collision Investigators are currently at the scene and the road is currently closed.

Gardaí are appealing to any road users, particularly those who may have dashcam footage to contact Henry Street Garda Station on 061 212 400, the Garda confidential line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
