Kyle Stewart, a spokesperson at the Garda Press Office said: “At approximately 5:45pm, Gardaí and emergency services were alerted to a collision involving a van and bicycle on the N25 at, Holmestown, Co. Wexford. The cyclist, a man in his 50s was taken to Wexford General Hospital to be treated for his injuries which are understood to be serious. No other injuries were reported.”

“The scene was preserved for a technical examination which has since concluded. The road was closed for a period but has since reopened,” said Stewart.

He added: “Gardaí are appealing to anyone who may have witnessed this collision to come forward. They are also appealing to road users who were travelling on the N25 in the Holmestown area between 5:30pm and 6:00pm with camera footage (including dash cam), to make it available to them.

Gardai are asking that anyone with information can contact Wexford Garda Station on 053 916 5200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.

CLARIFICATION: This article’s original headline and first paragraph mentioned ‘van driver’ rather than just van. This has been changed to better reflect wider possibilities. But — as always — the reporting of a collision involving somebody does not and should not be seen as reporting on or assigning blame.
