A man (39) has died following a collision in Co Westmeath.

He was treated at the scene and was removed by ambulance to Midland Regional Hospital, Tullamore where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

The crash sites and vehicles involved were examined by Garda forensic collision investigators and the road has since reopened to traffic.

The local Coroner has been notified and a post-mortem examination has been arranged.
