GARDAÍ ARE APPEALING for witnesses after a man in his 70s died in a single vehicle collision in Co Kerry. 

Shortly before 12pm yesterday, gardaí received a report of the collision on the Lartigue Road, Ballybunion. 

The alarm was raised when the body of a man in his 70s was discovered in the car. He was the sole occupant of the vehicle. 

He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later. 

The body of the deceased was taken to University Hospital Kerry where a post-mortem examination will be carried out. A file will now be prepared for the coroner. 

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses, in particular anyone who travelled on the Lartigue Road between 11.30am and 12.30pm yesterday, to come forward. 

Gardaí are also appealing to road users with dashcam footage recorded in the area during the times above to contact Listowel Garda Station on 068 50820, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any garda station.

Enquiries are ongoing.
