Teenager dies following overnight crash near Drumkeen

A teenager from Drumkeen has died in Letterkenny General Hospital following an overnight crash on the main N13 Letterkenny to Ballybofey Road.

The 18-year-old man was the sole occupant in one of the cars which was involved in the head-on collision involving two vehicles near Drumkeen just before midnight.

He was taken to Letterkenny General Hospital where he passed away this afternoon.

Two other people also involved in the crash, a 38-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman suffered multiple fractures, but their injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

The road from Drumkeen to the Kilross junction near Stranorlar was closed to facilitate a technical examination by Gardai but has since reopened.
