A teenager has been killed in a crash in Limerick in the early hours of this morning.

Three other men who were also in the car were injured, one seriously, and are being treated at University Hospital Limerick.
The incident has been referred to the Garda Ombudsman because of an earlier interaction between the crashed car and Gardaí.
