Man killed in overnight car accident in Cork

A man in his 20s has become the latest person to die on our roads after a crash in Co Cork in the early hours of this morning.

The accident happened at Killeens in Blarney shortly before 2am.

The driver and only occupant of a car was killed when the vehicle struck a ditch.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and his body removed to Cork University Hospital where a post mortem will take place later today.

The road in the area was closed pending an examination by Garda forensic collision investigators.

Gardaí are appealing for all road used to take extra care as we approach the end of the holiday weekend.
