A 19 year old was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later - it's understood he was the sole occupant of the car.

The man's body has since been removed to the mortuary at Cork University Hospital where a post-mortem will be carried out, and the Coroner has been notified.

The road remains closed to traffic to facilitate a technical examination - local diversions are in place.
