The 19-year-old was initially taken to Wexford General Hospital but was later transferred to St Vincent's Hospital in Dublin where he was pronounced dead yesterday morning.

A male passenger in the car and the female driver of the second car were also taken to hospital in Wexford. However their injuries are described as minor.
