A 56-YEAR-OLD woman has died following a single-vehicle collision in Co Galway. 

The collision occurred at around 10.20am this morning at Lismanny, Laurencetown, Ballinasloe on the Eyrecourt to Ballinasloe Road. 

A woman was fatally injured in the collision and was pronounced dead at the scene. There was no one else in the car. 

Her body was removed to University Hospital Galway where a post-mortem examination will take place. 

The road was closed to facilitate a forensic collision examination and local diversions were put in place. However, it has since reopened. 

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information to contact them in Ballinasloe on 090 963 1890, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda station. 

The Garda Press Office released a statement at 6.45pm this evening outlining that the victim in this incident was a man. In an updated statement at 8.10pm tonight, the Garda Press Office changed the earlier statement and said that the victim was a woman. 

The article has been amended to reflect this and to correct the mistake made by the press office.
