N17 reopens after fatal traffic accident

The N17 has fully reopened after being closed for forensic examination after a fatal traffic accident in the early hours of Monday morning.

Gardaí are appealing to the public for dashcam footage or witnesses to a traffic accident involving a car and a van that took place at Carrownurlar, Milltown today.

Ambulances, local fire services, and gardaí attended the scene of the collision which took place just after 1am on Monday.

The driver of the car, a man in his 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene while the van’s driver, another man in his 50s, was taken to Castlebar Hospital in Mayo as a precautionary measure.

The N17 between Milltown and Ballindine was closed for most of the day as gardaí carried out a technical examination of the scene, but has since reopened to traffic.

Gardaí are asking any witness, particularly those in the area who may have helpful dashcam footage, to contact Tuam Garda Station on 093 70840 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.
