TWO people have died after an accident involving a pony and cart on the Gap of Dunloe.

A man and a woman in their 60s, from Arizona in the United States, were fatally injured when the horse and carriage they were travelling in went off the road.

They were pronounced dead at the scene and their bodies removed to University Hospital Kerry in Tralee. The driver was also taken to Tralee Hospital but has since been released.

The road is currently closed to facilitate an examination by Garda Forensic Collison Investigators.
