One dead, two injured in crashes
A MAN died and two people were seriously injured in three separate traffic accidents.
Farmer PJ Garrett (59) was driving alone near Belmullet in Co Mayo when his car hit a wall shortly before midday.
It is not yet clear what caused the single-vehicle accident.
Two hours earlier a man suffered serious injuries after falling off the back of a lorry that was delivering milk in Dublin city centre.
The 28-year-old was rushed to St James' Hospital where he remains in a serious condition.
And a 25-year-old man was also seriously injured after the motorcycle he was driving collided with a road barrier on the Naul Road in Co Dublin at about 1.40pm.
He was being treated at Beaumont Hospital last night.
