Young driver dies at notorious bend

A YOUNG man who died yesterday in a road crash was driving home from a late night function when he lost control of his car at a notoriously dangerous bend.

Ciaran McKenna (19) from Creevekeeran, Crossmaglen, Co Armagh, was returning from Castleblayney with a female friend when his car spun out of control at Maghernakill, Co Monaghan, at 4.45am.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, while cutting equipment was used to free the female passenger, also aged 19, who had become trapped in the car.

Her injuries are not believed to be life threatening.
