Two people have died in separate road collisions in Limerick and Louth overnight.

A male pedestrian died following a collision with two cars on the Dublin Road in Castletroy in Limerick just before 10pm last night.

The driver of one car failed to remain at the scene, while the male driver in his 40s, as well as a female adult passenger of the second car, are being treated in University Hospital Limerick for non-life threatening injuries.

Meanwhile, a man in his 30s has died after the car he was in collided with a tractor on the M1 northbound between Junctions 12 and 14 at around 2am.

Two other male occupants of the car, in their 20s and 60s, are being treated in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Both scenes are closed while technical examinations take place.
