Pedestrian seriously injured after Tuam Road traffic collision

A man in his 30s has been taken to hospital with serious injuries after a traffic collision on the Tuam Road last night.

The traffic collision took place at approximately 10:45 last night at Polkeen, near McHugh’s Pub, and involved a car and a pedestrian.

The pedestrian, a man in his 30s, was taken to University Hospital Galway with serious injuries.

The Tuam road was closed overnight, and into this morning, between Two Mile Ditch and Clargalway while Gardaí carry out a forensic examination of the scene.

The road has reopened to traffic since shortly after 9:30am this morning gardaí have said.

The road closure has caused traffic chaos in Galway this morning, with AA Roadwatch reporting long delays both ways on the Oranmore/Claregalway road as well as the Monivea road between Carnmore Cross and Briarhill.

In the city traffic is also busier than usual on the N6 approach to Bothar na dTreabh, which is busy itself before the Coolagh roundabout to Ballybrit.
