Three people killed in Donegal road crash
THREE people, understood to be two men and one woman, have died in a two-car crash.
The collision happened near Drumkeen, on the outskirts of Letterkenny, at around 1am.
The road death toll for the week has reached double figures following the accident and it comes after the Garda Traffic Corps and Road Safety Authority issued appeals for drivers to take care on the roads as the August bank holiday approaches.
Four men were killed in a spate of crashes within hours of each other in Donegal, Meath and Kildare earlier in the week.
And a mother and her teenage son died in a crash in Co Galway on Sunday night, along with other fatal accidents in Kildare and Sligo.
