A teenager has been arrested following a single-car crash in Co Limerick overnight that has left one man dead and another injured.

One of the car's passengers - a man in his 20s - was pronounced dead at the scene.

His body has been removed to University Hospital Limerick for a post mortem.

Another man, also in his 20s, has been taken to University Hospital Limerick, and is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the car, an 18-year-old man, has been arrested.

He's being questioned at Henry Street Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

The road's currently closed and Forensic Collision Investigators are carrying out a technical examination of the scene.

Local diversions are in place.

Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses or anyone who was travelling on the route around 1am who may have camera footage to come forward.

It brings to 93 the number of people killed on the country's roads this year - four more than this time in 2020.

One crash in Co Galway on Thursday evening left four people dead, including a child.
