19-year-old killed in late night crash

The carnage continued on the roads last night with a fatal crash in Limerick.

A late night accident involving three cars on the Ballysimon Road left a 19-year-old girl dead. She was a passenger in one of the vehicles when the collision happened around 12.30am.

The young girl Emma Woodland from St. Patrick’s Road was killed just around the corner from her home. A Latvian man who was driving one of the cars left the scene of the crash but was apprehended by Gardai shortly after. He was arrested and charged today in Limerick District court with dangerous driving and with failing to stop, remain and report to Gardai at the scene of the crash.

The 21-year old driver, Roman Andreas from Rhebogue faced a total of 5 charges today. In reply to the charges, the man said “I’m sorry”.

He’s back in court again on Tuesday.
