Three people have been killed in separate road crashes in Wexford and Dublin.

A 20-year-old woman was killed in a hit-and-run incident on the Main Street in Gorey, Co Wexford, shortly after 2.30am.

She was knocked down by a car, which then drove off and was later discovered burnt out nearby.

It is understood that gardaí in Gorey had been alerted to the presence of a speeding car in the town and it is believed that at least one garda car was around 500m from the car when the collision took place.

However, it is understood that the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission is satisfied that the car involved in the collision was not being pursued by a garda vehicle at the time.

AA Roadwatch says Main Street is closed at the Enniscorthy Road junction. Motorists have been advised to take an alternative route.

Separately, two men were killed in a single-vehicle crash in Dublin

The driver died when his car crashed into a wall on Ballygall Road East, Glasnevin at around 7am.

A 21-year-old man who was a passenger in the car was seriously injured and taken to the Mater Hospital, where he later died.

The road was closed for a technical examination but has since re-opened.

Elsewhere, two men in their 60s were killed in separate two-car crashes in Co Carlow yesterday morning and Donegal town on Friday afternoon.

It brings to five the number of people killed on the country's roads this bank holiday weekend.
