CRUSHEEN teenager Delia Keary has become the fourth Clare person to die as a result of road traffic accidents in recent days.
The 18 year old had been a passenger in a car which collided with a truck at Wards Cross near Abbeyfeale on Friday evening. 19 year old Gary Kelly from Ennis died at the scene while Delia was taken to University Hospital, Limerick for treatment. However Gardai have confirmed that she passed away on Saturday night.
Newcastle West Gardai are investigating the incident and they have appealed to witnesses to contact them on 069 20650, The Garda Confidential Telephone Line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
Also the funeral takes place on Monday of Clare native Paul Hannon, who lost his life after he was involved in a collision with a car while cycling in Dublin on Friday morning. While last Thursday, three year old Estlin Wall was laid to rest after she had died following a road accident on the N85 Ennis-Ennistymon Road.
Meanwhile, Gardai are appealing for information after a 50 year old cyclist, named locally as Des Butler from Caherdavin in Limerick, died following a collision near Bunratty.
His bike collided with a camper van on the N18 main Limerick to Galway Road at around noon on Sunday. He was transferred to University Hospital Limerick, where he was later pronounced dead.
