A MAN IN his 20s was pronounced dead at the scene of a crash in Cork last night.

He had been travelling in a car with four other men in their early 20s when it collided with another vehicle.

The driver of the car  and a second passenger were both seriously injured and were taken to Cork University Hospital.

There were two women, aged in their late 20s and early 30s, in the second car involved in the collision. Both were taken to hospital with the three other male passengers from the other car, but their injuries are thought to not be serious.

The crash happened on the Cork to Ballincollig Road at an area known as Leemount Cross at about 8.30pm yesterday.

An examination of the crash site was carried out by garda forensic collision investigators and the road has since reopened to traffic.
