CO CLARE, Ireland - Another fatal single-vehicle crash has occurred on Irish roads.

The latest crash took place in the early hours of Sunday morning.

At approximately 3:00am Sunday a man in his 30s died when the car he was driving left the road and struck a wall.

The collision occurred on the R465 at Roo East between Ardnacrush and Broadford. The man was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later. It's understood he was the sole occupant of the car.

His body has since been removed to the mortuary at University Hospital Limerick and the local Coroner has been notified.

The crash site and car have been preserved for examination by Garda Forensic Collision Investigators and local Scenes of Crime Officers. The road was closed to traffic and local diversions were put in place.

Investigating Garda are appealing to anyone with information, particularly any road users with camera footage who were travelling the R465 between Ardnacrusha and Broadford around the time of the collision, to contact them at Henry Street Garda Station 061-212400 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111.

Sunday's crash follows a similar incident on Saturday, when a van struck a tree on the R705 between Goresbridge and Bagenalstown, Co Kilkenny critically injuring the driver, who later died in St Luke's Hospital, Co Kilkenny.
