Gardaí are appealing for witnesses after a man in his 20s was killed in a single car crash in the midlands.

It happened at Clonfin yesterday morning.

The scene has been preserved for examination, and the road is currently closed with local diversions in place.

The body of the man has been taken to the morgue at Mullingar Hospital and the Coroner has been notified.

Gardaí are appealing for witnesses and for any motorist who was driving on the route around the time and may have dash-cam footage to make it available to them.
