GARDAÍ ARE INVESTIGATING a car crash in Rush, Co Dublin, in which a man (35) died last night.

The two-car collision occurred on the Skerries Road near the intersection with St Catherine’s estate at approximately 11.30pm.

Gardaí and emergency services attended the scene. The male driver, who was the sole occupant of one car, was pronounced dead at the scene and his body has been removed to the mortuary at James Connolly Memorial Hospital.
