The second driver, a woman in her 20s, and the front seat passenger, a man in his 20s, received minor injuries. 

The 80-year-old man was pronounced dead a short time later at Wexford General Hospital.

This stretch of road was closed to facilitate an examination by Garda Forensic Collision Investigators and local diversions were in place but has since reopened.
