A teenager seriously injured in a single vehicle car crash in Co Longford last night has been transferred to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda for further treatment.

The injured youngster was one of three men seriously injured in a road collision when the car in which they were travelling struck a tree in the Kilmore area of Toome, close to Granard town shortly before midnight.

He has this lunchtime been transferred for further treatment to what have been described as non life-threatening injuries.

It's understood he was the front seat passenger in the car, sustaining facial injuries and a suspected broken hip as a result.

Two others, a man in his 30s and another male teenager, have since been discharged from hospital.

The trio were initially taken to Cavan General Hospital and Tullamore's Midland Regional Hospital for treatment as gardaí closed off the road ahead of a full forensic collision examination being carried out this morning.

It's understood that examination has now concluded and gardaí have reopened the road as investigations into what may have caused last night's collision continue.
