Fatal road traffic collision on the N21 in Limerick on the 7/12/10

Gardai are investigating a fatal road traffic collision which occurred on the 7th December 2010. The crash happened on the N21 between Rathkeale and Croagh, Co. Limerick at about 9.30 p.m.

Two men in their 20's were killed and a third occupant of the car, a man in his 30's, was seriously injured when the car they were traveling in struck a tree.  The injured man was taken to the Mid Western Regional Hospital.

The road remains closed pending an examination by Garda Forensic Collision Investigators.

A number of witnesses to the crash have already come forward, however Gardai are asking anyone with information to contact Askeaton Garda Station on 061 601630.

In light of the fact that shortly before the collision a Garda had observed the car and had turned his vehicle to follow it, the Garda Siochana Ombudsman's office has been notified.
