GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING for witnesses following a serious injury road traffic collision in Co Wexford last night.

Gardaí and emergency services were alerted at approximately 11pm when a car left the road and struck a tree on the N25 at Ballinaboola near New Ross.

The two occupants of the car were taken from the scene by ambulance to Waterford University Hospital.

The condition of the driver, a man in his late 20s, is understood to be serious. Injuries sustained by the passenger, a man also in his 20s, are not thought to be life-threatening.

The crash site was preserved overnight for examination by garda forensic collision investigators and the road is not expected to reopen until later this morning. Traffic diversions are in place.

Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this collision to come forward. Road users travelling on the N25 at Ballinaboola at the time of the collision with camera footage (including dashcam footage) are asked to make it available to investigating gardaí.
