A 19-year-old man has died and a second man, aged 21, has been injured in a crash in Co Mayo late last night.

The crash happened around 11pm on the N60 Ballyhaunis to Ballinlough Road in the Cloonafarna area close to the Roscommon border.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene and a second man was transferred to Mayo University Hospital by ambulance. His injuries are not believed to be serious.

The road is currently closed with diversions through Cloonfad from the Ballyhaunis side and also from Ballinlough.

It is expected that the road will remain closed this morning while a forensic collision investigation is conducted.

The crash is being investigated by gardaí from Claremorris who are appealing to anyone who travelled along the N60 between 10.30pm and 11.15pm yesterday to check for video footage (including dashcam) and make it available to them.
