A man's in a critical condition in hospital after a serious crash in County Leitrim.

No other car was involved when it happened close to Dromahair yesterday.

This single car collision happened at Fivemilebourne shortly after 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon.

The man in his 60s was driving a car which hit a ditch. He was the only person in it and was brought from the scene to Sligo University Hospital.

He's fighting for his life in the hospital this morning and gardaĆ­ are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

They're also asking any road users who may have camera footage, who were travelling on the R278 at Fivemilebourne yesterday afternoon, to make it available to them.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Manorhamilton Garda Station.
