A young woman has died following a single vehicle collision in Waterford on Thursday night.

Rachel Hennessy (25) was driving along the Five Cross Roads near Stradbally village when her car crashed into a wall.

Sources say heavy fog may have impaired the woman's vision as she was driving at around 9.30pm.

Ms Hennessy, who is from the Stradbally area, was rushed to University Hospital Waterford in a critical condition with what have been described as "catastrophic injuries".

The woman was pronounced dead on Friday afternoon.

Meanwhile, two people are being treated at the University Hospital Limerick, following a two car collision in Clare yesterday afternoon.

The incident took place on the N67 Kilrush to Killimer Road, near Ennis.

It is understood that the fire brigade had to remove one passenger from the car using specialist cutting equipment.
