Pair killed and man seriously injured in Co Donegal road accident

A man and woman have been killed and a third person seriously injured in a road accident.

The crash happened at a bend on the N13 Letterkenny to Derry road near Newtowncunningham, Co Donegal, when two cars collided.

Gardai said the dead man and woman were aged in their 30s.

A second man was taken from the scene by ambulance to Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry.

The crash happened at about 2.30pm on Friday on a road which passes a townland called Moyle, about a mile from Newtowncunningham.

Gardai appealed for witnesses.

Emergency services remained at the scene for a number of hours, with the N13 closed while forensic collision investigators inspect the scene.
