2019’s road death toll rises as four men in their 20s are killed in Donegal

2019’s road death toll rises as four men in their 20s are killed in Donegal

Four young men in their 20’s lost their lives in a road accident in north-west Donegal last night. Gardaí have described the scene of the crash as “devastating”.

Emergency services were called to the scene shortly before 9 pm last night, where a single-vehicle accident had taken place. All four men were pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

It is understood that the men were all from west Donegal, and aged between 20 and 24. The men have not officially been named as their families are still being informed, but are thought to be local.

Local Sinn Féin TD Pearse Doherty commented on the news, saying there was a “cloud of sadness over the area”, and added that his thoughts and prayers were with the victim’s families.

The crash in Donegal was not the only road death to occur on Irish roads last night. A man in his 80’s also lost his life in a single-vehicle accident in Kilkenny between 7 pm and 8 pm last night. The man was killed when the car left the road and collided with a pole.

Gardaí at both scenes have appealed for any witnesses to contact them with any information. In Donegal, witnesses can contact Milford Garda Station on 074 915 3060 and in Kilkenny, witnesses can contact Castlecomer Garda Station on 056-4440650. Anyone with any information can also call the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
