man airlifted to hospital after two-car crash in kerry as gardai appeal for witnesses

The crash took place on the N22 at Knockeenduff at approximately 7:50am on Tuesday

Gardaí in Co Kerry are investigating a two-car crash near Killarney on Tuesday in which two people were hospitalised.

The crash took place on the N22 at Knockeenduff at approximately 7:50am.

Two people were injured as a result of the collision. The driver of one vehicle, a man aged in his 50s, was transferred by air ambulance to Cork University Hospital for treatment of injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening.

The other vehicle's driver was taken to University Hospital Kerry to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. A technical examination of the scene was carried out by Forensic Collision Investigators which led to the closure of the road for a time. The road has since reopened.

Gardaí are making an appeal to the public for witnesses to the collision to come forward. A spokesperson for An Garda Síochána told the Irish Mirror in a statement: "Any road users who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) and were travelling on the N22 at Knockeenduff between 7:30am and 8:15am are asked to make this footage available to Gardaí.

"Anyone with any information is asked to contact Killarney Garda Station on 064 667 1160, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station."
