Two male drivers were hospitalised, and livestock were killed following a road traffic collision in Co Mayo.

The two-vehicle RTC occurred at Ballyagally North, Glenamoy, in the county on Sunday evening.

Confirming the news to That’s Farming, a spokesperson for An Garda Síochána said:

“Gardaí attended the scene of a two-vehicle road traffic collision at Ballyagally North, Glenamoy, Mayo at approximately 4:55 pm on Sunday, September 25th, 2022.”

“Two male drivers (aged in their early 30s & mid 50s) were injured during the collision. One was removed to Mayo University Hospital, and the other was airlifted to Sligo University Hospital.”

“One of the vehicles involved was transporting livestock, and a number of livestock were killed as a result of the collision. Investigations ongoing,” the spokesperson concluded.

Van seized

In other news, Gardaí in the south-east of the country seized a van for multiple road traffic-related offences last week.

A member of Kilkenny Gardaí’s mounted unit initially discovered the van on Rose Inn Street and detected issues with its improvised wing mirror, tax and DOE discs and tyres.

According to a spokesperson for Garda Síochána Waterford, Kilkenny/Carlow:

“The driver of this van had a novel way of improvising a wing mirror. He also saved us the bother of blurring out the registration number on the DOE and Tax disc as there was not any number.”

“In fairness, the tyres were not great either. The van, intercepted by one of our bike members on Rose Inn Street, was seized under Section 41 of the Road Traffic Act after some exuberant pedalling, as the Garda spotted the vehicle outside the post office and had to follow,” the spokesperson added.
