A man has been killed and three people injured in a two-car collision in north county Dublin overnight.

The crash happened on the Skerries to Rush road near the intersection with St Catherine's Estate at 11.45pm.

A 35-year-old man, who was the sole occupant of his car, was pronounced dead at the scene and his body was removed to the mortuary at Connolly Memorial Hospital.

The three occupants of the other car, a 24-year-old female and a 45-year-old and 28-year-old male, were injured and taken to Beaumont and Connolly Memorial Hospitals.

Their conditions have been described this morning as serious, but not life-threatening.

The crash happened on a sharp bend on the Rush side of the St Catherine’s estate.

As dawn broke today the two cars could be seen at the side of the road after the head-on crash.

Local diversions were put in place while the road was closed between the St Catherine's estate and the Cliffland estate pending a technical examination of the scene by garda crash investigators.

Dublin Fire Brigade said it had sent units from Swords and Skerries and a District Officer from Finglas to the crash.

Four ambulances were reported to have been seen at the crash site last night.

Gardaí  are appealing for witnesses or anyone with any information to contact them at Balbriggan Garda station 01 8020510, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
