ANOTHER life was lost on the roads yesterday after a 21-year-old man died in a two-car crash.

The man was fatally injured when the car he was in collided with a taxi on the Ballyhooley road, near the Fox and Hounds pub in Ballyvolane, Co Cork.

Gardai believe the Astra was stolen from Mourne Avenue in the Glen, Cork, and are appealing to anyone with information to contact Mayfield garda station on 021-4558510.

Meanwhile, gardai in Mayo renewed appeals for witnesses to a hit-and-run in which Peter Rushe (67) of Barnacogue, Swinford, died, when a Peugeot 405 collided with Mr Rushe's car at Barrack Street, Charlestown, at 10.45pm last Wednesday. Two men were seen running from the Peugeot afterwards. Eyewitnesses are asked to call gardai on 094-9252990.
