A woman has died in a two vehicle  road traffic collision on the main Killarney to Tralee Road near Farranfore at around 2pm this afternoon.

Shortly after 2pm Gardaí and emergency services were alerted to a two car collision on the N22 at Brennans Glen, Killarney.

The scene was attended by local Garda and Roads Policing Units along with fire and emergency services personnel.

A female passenger (40s) in one of the cars seriously injured in the collision was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later. Two other occupants of the same car, a man and woman both understood to be in their 70s, were taken from the scene by ambulance to University Hospital Kerry (UHK).

The woman is understood to be in a critical condition while the man’s injuries are not thought to be life threatening. The deceased has since been removed to the mortuary at UHK.

The occupants of the second car, two females aged in their early 20s, were removed by Air Ambulance to Cork University Hospital (CUH) and University Hospital Limerick (UHL). Their injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

The road at the crash site remains sealed off for examination by Garda forensic collision investigators and traffic diversions are in place. The local Coroner and Superintendent have visited the scene.

Investigating Gardaí are appealing for witnesses and are particularly appealing to those with camera footage (including dash cam) to make it available to them. Anyone who can assist with this investigation is asked to contact Killarney Garda Station 064-6671160 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
