Gardai appeal for witnesses after fatal car crash in Cork


A woman has died and four other people have been hospitalised following a two-car collision in Cork on Sunday evening.

Gardai in Mayfield, Cork are appealing for witnesses after the crash at Skew Bridge, Tivoli at 4pm.

A woman in her sixties was seriously injured at the scene, and was later pronounced dead in hospital.

She was a passenger in one of the cars involved in the collision.

Four other people have also been taken to Cork University Hospital where their injuries have been described as non life threatening.

Gardai have preserved the scene for a forensic and technical examination and local diversions are in place.

The Skew Bridge is located on the N8 on the north side of the River Lee - it was named so as the road bridge crosses over the railway line at a skew angle.

They have requested that anyone with information contact Mayfield Garda Station 021-4558510, the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
