A woman has died and four people have been hospitalised following a road collision.

According to RTÉ, the two-car collision occurred on the M4 near Kinnegad at about 1.30am.

The driver of one car, a woman in her early 50s, has died. A female passenger and two children have been hospitalised with injuries.

The driver of the other car, an off-duty Garda member, is also receiving medical attention.

The eastbound carriageway of the M4 between the Kinnegad and Enfield exits is likely to remain closed until early afternoon, for the forensic examination to be completed. Diversions are in place.

The Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission has opened an investigation and is appealing for information. Please call 1890 600 800 if you can provide assistance.
