All three vehicles were travelling westbound towards Galway city when the crash happened. Five other people were taken to University Hospital Galway for treatment to non life-threatening injuries.
The young girl has since been transferred to Temple Street Hospital in Dublin, where her condition was described this afternoon as “critical”.
