A WOMAN in her sixties was killed and three others injured -- two seriously -- in a road crash between a car and a van last night.
The crash happened at 7.15pm at Madlagh, Fossa, on the Killarney to Killorglin Road. The incident was on a straight stretch of road.
Gardai closed off the area and diverted traffic as crash scene investigators moved in.
The woman who died was a passenger in a Toyota Corolla car which was in collision with a Ford transit van. She is from Cahirciveen.
Two other people in the car, a man and a woman, were injured. The male occupant of the car and the sole male occupant of the van are understood to be in a serious condition at Kerry General Hospital in Tralee. Gardai in Killarney are appealing for witnesses to the accident.
