Gardaí launched a search operation this morning for the driver of a car involved in the two-car collision near Tulla, as he was believed to have fled the scene on foot.
The driver of the other vehicle,a man in his sixties, who was seriously injured, was brought to University Hospital Limerick.
Emergency services were called to the two-car collision at Knockadoon, on the main Tulla to Scariff Road, shortly before 7.30am. The road was closed for a number of hours for a technical examination.
A garda search for the missing driver of the second car was to no avail.
However, a man later presented himself for treatment at Midwestern Hospital Ennis, and enquiries are being being made as to whether this was linked to the accident.
