The man, in his mid-twenties, died in a car crash in Waterford last night.

Gardaí are now appealing for witnesses to come forward following the incident, which occurred on the N29, Port Road, after 10.30pm on Saturday.

Two men, both around 20 years old, were the only occupants of the car involved in the accident. Both were taken by ambulance to Waterford University Hospital, where the driver of the car was later pronounced dead.

The passenger of the car suffered injuries as a result of the incident, but they are not described as life-threatening.

A technical investigation of the accident site is planned and local traffic diversions are in operation. A report will also be sent to the coroner.

Gardaí are appealing for any witnesses with information to come forward. Gardaí would particularly like to speak to road users who were in the area at the time of the accident and who may have footage, including from dashcams, to provide them with this.
