Two teenagers have died – and three others are injured, after a crash in County Donegal.

Gardai are appealing for witnesses following the collision, which happened in the Inishowen area, during the early hours of the morning.


The single vehicle crash happened at about 3.30 this morning on the Moville road between Quigley’s Point and Whitecastle.

Gardaí say both fatal victims were in their late teens.

One was pronounced dead at the scene and the second at Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry.

Three other occupants of the car – also men in their late teens – were taken to Altnagelvin and Letterkenny Hospitals.

They’re said to be in a stable condition.

Gardaí are now appealing for witnesses to the accident.

The road’s been closed to allow an examination by Garda Forensic Collision Investigators.
