Three escape, one dies, in Tipperary crash

An 18-year-old man has died following a road crash in Co Tipperary.

The single-car collision happened at 9pm on the M7 at Junction 22 Roscrea last night.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene and taken to Limerick Regional Hospital where a post mortem is due to take place later today.

There were three passengers in the car at the time of the collision, two women aged 20 & 19 and another 18-year-old man.

They were taken to Portlaoise Hospital but have since been released.

The M7 will remain closed for most of the morning and motorists travelling northbound are asked to exit at junction 23 for Moneygall and can rejoin the M7 at junction 21 at Borris in Ossory.
