A MAN in his 30s has died after the van he was driving hit a tree in Co Kerry.

The fatal collision happened on the L3025 near Beaufort at around 7.15pm yesterday evening.

 

The man was the sole occupant of the van.

 

He was taken to Kerry General Hospital in Tralee where he was later pronounced dead.

 

The stretch of road was closed for a time to facilitate an examination by Garda Forensic Collision investigators but has since reopened.

 

Gardai have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
