Woman dies in two-car crash

AN elderly woman was killed last night after a two-car road smash.

The crash happened on the Howth Road in Sutton, on Dublin's north side, at about 5.30pm.

It is understood the woman, who was in her late 60s or early 70s, was alone in the car.

She was rushed to Beaumont Hospital in a critical condition, but was later pronounced dead.

Gardai closed off the road at the crash site for forensic examination in a bid to establish the cause of the collision.

No one else was injured in the incident.
