Teenage cyclist in serious condition following collision with truck in Galway

Anyone with information on the collision is asked to contact Tuam Garda Station.

A teenager is in a serious condition in hospital following a collision with a truck yesterday evening in Galway.

Gardaí attended the scene of the serious road traffic collision that occurred at Russellstown, Miltown, Tuam, Co Galway at around 5.30pm.

"Gardaí were alerted to a road traffic collision involving a bicycle and a truck," said a garda spokesperson.

"A male in his late teens (cyclist) was taken to University Hospital Galway to be treated for his injuries. He has since been transferred to Beaumont Hospital where his condition is described as serious."

The road was closed to allow for a technical examination to be conducted by Forensic Collision Investigators which has since concluded and the road has reopened.

Gardaí in Tuam are appealing for witnesses to come forward and to those with camera footage (including dash-cam) to make it available to them.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Tuam Garda Station on 093 708 40, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.
