Two men have been killed in a road crash in Co Kildare.

The single vehicle collision happened near Allenwood just before 8pm on the Derrinturn to Allenwood Road.

The two men, aged 21 and 28, were killed when the car they were travelling in left the road and struck a tree.

They were both pronounced dead at the scene.

The road was closed to facilitate Garda forensic collision investigators and diversions were put in place.

Gardai have appealed for witnesses or anyone who was travelling in the area who may have information about the incident to contact them.
