Man killed in Donegal road traffic accident


A man in his twenties was killed in a road traffic accident in Co Donegal this morning.

The crash happened in the same area where five young people lost lives in a two-car collision in the early hours of Saturday .

The man - believed to be from Derry - was the back seat passenger in a car and was killed instantly when the vehicle crashed into a cement gate post on the Birdstown Road between Muff and Burnfoot just after 3am.

Three other men and a woman in the car, all of them aged in their twenties, were injured though not seriously.
