Second fatal collision last night on M1

Less than 24 hours after a fatal accident on the M1 another has occurred between Dunleer and Ardee.

As reported on LMFM this morning, a collision occurred between a car and a lorry at 1.30am.

The driver of the car was rushed to Our Lady of Lourdes in Drogheda but he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Garda Forensic Collision Investigators are at the scene at the moment and as a result, the motorway is closed northbound between Junction 13 and 14 until further notice.

More to follow.
