A woman on a bicycle was killed in a collision with a truck at rush hour this morning in Limerick.
“The collision involving an articulated truck and a cyclist happened at the junction of Rutland Street, Fr. Matthew Bridge and Charlotte’s Quay at 7.30 am,” said James Molloy at the Garda press office.
He added: “The woman, believed to be in her 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her body has been removed to the Mid Western Regional Hospital where a post mortem examination will take place.”
Gardai say that the roadway in the area, which is close to The Hunt Museum, is closed and diversions are in place.
