A man in his fifties suffered fatal injuries following a three-car collision that occurred in North Cork yesterday.

Gardaí in Mallow are investigating a fatal road traffic collision involving three cars in which a man in his 50s suffered fatal injuries when his car collided with a second car. One of the two cars then spun on the road and subsequently hit a third car during the incident.

The accident occurred on the N20 road in Ballybeg, West Buttevant yesterday evening, at approximately 10.50pm.

Emergency services attended the scene, and the man was pronounced dead a short time later.  His body was removed to the mortuary at Cork University Hospital where a post-mortem examination is due to be carried out today.

The driver and two passengers of the second car were taken to Cork University Hospital with minor injuries.

The N20 Buttevant/Mallow road will remain partially closed while garda forensic collision Investigators examine the scene, with local diversions in place.

Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have information regarding this incident, particularly any road users with camera footage who were travelling the Buttevant/Mallow road between 10.00pm and 11.30pm on Tuesday 18 February to contact Mallow Garda Station on 022-31450, or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800-666111 or any garda station.
