Man injured in Drumlish crash is out of danger

Garda appeal following Drumlish accident

A north Longford man seriously injured after being knocked down by a car in Drumlish on St Patrick's Day is out of danger, it has been revealed.

The 24-year-old man, who is from the Ballinalee area, sustained serious injuries during an incident at Mary Street, Drumlish village at approximately 8.35pm.

It's understood they included a broken leg, broken arm as well as concerns surrounding a possible head injury.

He was later removed to the Midland Regional Hospital in Mullingar where his condition had initially been described as serious.

However, the injured man has since been transferred to the Midland Regional Hospital in Tullamore where he is expected to remain under observation for several days. The road itself remained closed for a considerable length of time to allow a forensic collision investigation to take place.

It was later re-opened on Monday afternoon.

In the interim, gardaí have issued an appeal for anyone who may have witnessed the incident to contact them at Granard Garda Station at (043) 6686512.
