The M6, near Athenry

Young girl 'critical' as gardaí renew appeal over Galway crash

The five-year-old girl injured in the three car collision on the M6 on Wednesday has been transferred to Temple Street in Dublin for continued treatment.

GARDAÍ HAVE RENEWED their appeal for witnesses to a serious road crash on the M6 at Newford, Athenry in Galway on Wednesday evening.

A five-year-old girl was seriously injured in the three-vehicle collision, which happened at around 7pm.

All three vehicles were travelling westbound towards Galway city when the crash happened. Five other people were taken to University Hospital Galway for treatment to non life-threatening injuries.

The young girl has since been transferred to Temple Street Hospital in Dublin, where her condition was described this afternoon as “critical”.

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash, or assisted at the scene afterwards, is being asked to contact Mill Street Garda Station on 091 538000, the Garda Confidential Line 1800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
