Gardaí are carrying out an investigation after a teenager died on his way to hospital following a car crash in Wicklow yesterday morning.

A man (33) was arrested a short time later and was charged with drink driving at a special hearing of Bray District Court yesterday. He was released on bail.

Thomas Wall (13), from Greenhills Road, Tallaght, Dublin, was travelling with the man in Wicklow yesterday.

Their car left the road near Annamoe at 6.40am. They climbed from the car and walked for several miles before they were picked up by a passer-by near Roundwood.

The teenager's condition worsened and he died en route to Loughlinstown Hospital.
