Two women have been injured – at least one seriously – in a crash in Kilkenny this morning.
Emergency services are still at the scene near St Joseph’s National School at Clinstown, on the N77 Ballyragget to Kilkenny Road.
Two cars collided, head-on, and one woman has had to be air-lifted to hospital in Dublin with head injuries, while the other has been taken by ambulance to St Luke’s Hospital.
That stretch of the road has been closed off for a forensic examination to take place, and is likely to remain closed for much of the day.
The two cars involved were a saloon black Toyota, and a hatchback white Kia.
Anyone who witnessed what happened or who saw these two vehicles in the lead-up to the crash is asked to contact Gardaí.
