Man (20) dies after Westmeath car crash

Gardaí have appealed for witnesses.

A MAN (20) has died after a crash in Westmeath yesterday evening.

The car he was a passenger in struck a parked car and wall on the R148 at Griffinstown near Kinnegad shortly before 9.30pm. He was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency services.

The driver of the car, also a man aged 20, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The parked car was unoccupied.

Gardaí are asking anyone who was travelling on the road at the time of the collision – particularly those who may have dash cam footage – to contact them.

The scene remains closed while a forensic examination is carried out, and diversions are in place.
