A 72-year-old man has died in hospital following a serious road crash two weeks ago.

The two car crash occurred just outside Lifford, Co Donegal at approximately 3.15pm on August 30.

The male driver and sole occupant of one car was injured and taken to Letterkenny University Hospital. He passed away in hospital last Friday, September 9.

The other car was driven by a male in his early 30s who was uninjured.

Two child passengers - both aged under seven years - were also unhurt in the collision.

In total, 130 people have died on Irish roads so far this year, in comparison to 110 during the same period in 2015.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone who may have been on on the Lifford to Letterkenny Rd between 3pm and 3.15pm to contact them in Letterkenny on 074 9167100, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
