A man in his twenties has died after his car crashed into a lorry in Co Waterford.

Gardai are investigating the collision that happened on the N25 at Bawnard, Ardmore, in the early hours of Saturday morning at about 4.30am.

The man was alone in the car and was pronounced dead at the scene. His body remained at the crash site later into Saturday morning.

The male driver of the lorry, aged in his late forties, was removed to University Hospital Waterford with non life-threatening injuries.

The stretch of road is currently closed to facilitate an examination by Garda forensic collision investigators and local diversions were in place.

Witnesses who may have driven on the N25 between the hours of 4am and 5am from Youghal bridge to Dungarvan, and who may have dash cams in their vehicles, are asked to contact Dungarvan Garda station, the Garda Confidential Line or any Garda station.
