Young man injured after collision involving a tractor

Earlier this month, a man in his late-teens was injured after the car he was driving was involved in a road traffic collision with a tractor and slurry tanker.

The accident reportedly took place in the Ballymacquinn area near Ardert in Co. Kerry at around 5:00pm on Monday, June 12.

Nobody was seriously injured in the collision, but the driver of the car was admitted to University Hospital Kerry in Tralee, according to Gardai.

The driver of the tractor, who was believed to be in his 30s, was uninjured; he was driving a Massey Ferguson that was towing a slurry tanker when the collision occurred.

Gardai confirmed at the time that they were investigating the incident.
