Man (23) arrested over fatal M7 crash

GARDAI investigating the death of an innocent woman whose car was hit in a high-speed car chase have arrested a 23-year-old man.

The man was arrested yesterday morning and was being detained last night at Kildare Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

The horrific accident, which caused the death of 43-year-old Diana Harton, took place close to Kildare Village on the M7 motorway last Thursday, October 23.


The Tallaght woman's car was struck from behind by another vehicle, which is believed was being pursued by gardai, at around 9pm.

Ms Harton's funeral is due to take place today at 11am at Church of The Sacred Heart, Killinarden, Tallaght, followed by burial at Bohernabreena Cemetery.
