Gardaí investigating a fatal road traffic collision in Clonmel, on the 18th of March have arrested a 20-year-old male.

He was arrested this morning (20/3/2014) and is currently detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984, at Clonmel Garda Station.

Investigating Gardaí are continuing to appeal for anyone with information to contact Clonmel Garda Station on 052 - 6177640, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.

The single vehicle fatal road traffic collision occurred at Rathronan, Clonmel in the early hours of Tuesday morning, at about 1.20a.m.

The front seat passenger of the car, a man, 28 years, was fatally injured when the vehicle he was travelling in hit a ditch. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, a male 20 years, was taken to South Tipperary Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The road was closed to facilitate a Garda Forensic Collision Examination and local diversions were put in place for most of the day. This brings to six the number of people killed on Tipperary’s roads since the start of the year
