Man dies in early-morning Louth crash
The victim was in his 20s.

GARDAÍ IN LOUTH are investigating the circumstances of a single-car collision in Ardee.

The vehicle was discovered on Bog Road in Townspark at about 7am this morning. Investigators are unsure when the incident occurred as it could have been any time between last night and the early hours of this morning.

The driver – a man in his 20s and the sole occupant of the car – was pronounced dead at the scene.

His body was taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda.

The road is currently closed for forensic and technical examinations. Gardaí have issued an appeal to anyone who travelled the Bog Road during the night to contact the local station on 041 685 3222.

It is the second road death this weekend, following the tragic news from Cork yesterday that a four-year-old girl was killed in a single-vehicle collision.
