A man in his mid-20s died in a fatal two-car collision on the dual carriageway between Newbridge and Naas last night.
It is believed a Garda car was involved in the incident, which has been referred to the Garda Siochana Ombudsman Comission.
The Naas to Newbridge lanes of the R445 dual carriageway are closed to traffic this Sunday for a technical examination and diversions are in place.
The man was taken by ambulance to Naas General Hospital following the incident, which took place at 3.20am on Sunday, January 27. He was pronounced dead a short time later.
