A man and woman who were seriously injured in a car crash in Co Donegal on Sunday morning are believed to be American tourists.

The pair, believed to be in their 20s and 30s, were seriously injured when their car collided with a lorry.

The accident happened shortly after 10am on the R246 at Tirhomin between Milford and Kerrykeel in Co Donegal.

They were taken by ambulance to Letterkenny University Hospital. It is understood that the male (30s) has since been transferred to Beaumont hospital.

There was a head on collision with an articulated lorry and the roof had to be cut from the car to access the casualties.

The driver of the lorry was uninjured.

The crash site has been examined by Garda Forensic Collision Investigators and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Milford Garda Station 074-9153060 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
