Woman dies in two-car crash

A WOMAN driver was killed and a man was injured in a two- car smash on a notorious stretch of road. The collision happened in Co Mayo on the Foxford-to-Ballina Road, about 5km outside Foxford.

The victim was Bernadette Langan, who was in her 50s, of Knockmore, Ballina.

The driver of the other car, Gabriel Flynn, in his 50s, also from Knockmore, suffered non life-threatening injuries.

The road has been the scene of many collisions over the years. Councillor John O'Hara said the crash happened close to the drivers' homes. "They would have known each other, which makes it even sadder."
