Boy, 12, dies after car he was driving crashed into a lorry in Ireland

Irish police are appealing for witnesses after a 12-year-old boy driving a car was killed in a road crash in the south-west of the country.

The boy was driving on the N21, a national primary road, in County Limerick in the early hours of the morning when the car he was the sole occupant of collided with a lorry.

Emergency services were alerted to the crash at around 2am, but the boy had suffered fatal injuries in the crash.

The driver of the lorry, a man in his 40s, was not seriously injured and did not require hospital treatment.


The boy’s body was taken to the morgue at University Hospital Limerick, and the coroner has been notified.

The crash took place in the townland of Rineroe, near the well-known heritage town of Adare.

Gardaí, the Irish police, are appealing to any witnesses to come forward, especially road users who may have camera or dash-cam footage and were travelling on the N21 near the Adare area at the time of the collision.

Anyone with any information on the crash is being asked to contact the Garda station at Newcastlewest.
