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.
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.
