A man in his 80s has died following a road collision in Co Donegal.

Two vehicles were involved in the incident at Greenbank, Quigley’s Point, close to Muff, at around 5.30pm on Thursday.

The man who died was the sole occupant of one of the vehicles and was fatally injured during the collision.

His body was taken to the mortuary at Letterkenny Hospital ahead of a post-mortem at a later date.

The driver and passenger in the other vehicle, both men aged in their 30s, were treated at the scene for their injuries.

The R238 was expected to remain closed overnight and local diversions are in place, with the scene preserved for Garda Forensic Collision Investigators to commence their examination in the morning.
