Man dies, woman injured, in two-car crash in Donegal

A man has died in a two-car road accident in Co. Donegal.

The accident happened at Dooballagh in Letterkenny at around 7.45pm yesterday.

The 55-year-old man driving a Red Toyota Hilux was taken to Letterkenny General Hospital with serious injuries, but he died today.

A 33-year-old woman, who was a passenger in a black Mazda involved in the collision, suffered less serious injuries and is being treated in Letterkenny General Hospital.

The driver of the black Mazda, a 22-year-old man, ran from the scene but was arrested afterwards.

He is being held at Letterkenny Garda Station and is due to appear before Carrick-on-Shannon District Court tomorrow afternoon.
