Two teenagers die in road accident in Co Donegal – The Irish Times

Two teenagers have died in a car crash on the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal.

The man and woman were killed on the R238 in Terrawee, Gleneely, at around 12.45pm on Monday. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

A third person in the car was taken to Letterkenny University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The R238 remains closed and diversions are in place. The crime scene has been cordoned off and a technical investigation will be carried out this morning.

Gardaí in Buncrana are appealing for any witnesses to contact them.

Any road user who was traveling on the R238 between midnight and 1am this morning and has camera footage (including dashcam) is asked to make this available to Gardaí.

There have already been several fatalities in road accidents on the Inishowen Peninsula. In July 2010, eight people died in a two-car collision, and five died in crashes each in 2004 and 2005. Another five died when a car slipped into the water at Buncrana Pier in 2016.

Two more people were killed in a car accident on the Inishowen Peninsula in 2017.

The latest deaths bring the number of people killed on Irish roads so far this year to 161.
