Appeal for witnesses

Gardai are appealing for witnesses after a woman in her 60s died after she was struck by a truck in Athy yesterday afternoon.

The fatal traffic collision took place at around 2.30pm, when the pedestrian, in her 60s, was struck by a truck at Duke Street. The incident took place near the Crom A Boo bridge.

The woman was treated at the scene by emergency services personnel but was pronounced dead a short time later. The driver of the truck was uninjured. 

It's understood the woman was not from the town, but is from County Kildare.
