A man remains in serious condition in Letterkenny General Hospital following a single-vehicle road traffic collision this morning.

The collision occurred at about 12.50am on Thursday, March 20th, when a car collided with a stone wall at Drumnohoah on the main Letterkenny to Derry road, about two kilometres outside Letterkenny, between the Dry Arch and Polestar roundabouts.

The road remains closed, pending completion of a Garda forensic collision examination. A diversion is in place and motorists are advised to use the Cullion road until further notice.

The 23-year-old male driver, the sole occupant of the car, was seriously injured and taken to Letterkenny General where his condition was described as serious.

The road closure has resulted in gridlock on roads entering and through the town.

Letterkenny gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone who may have been on the Letterkenny to Derry road between 12.30am and 1am to contact them on 074 9167100, or to contact the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
