Man held after fatal accident released without charge

A man arrested after a road accident in which two people were killed and three injured in Co Donegal has been released without charge.

The vehicle they were travelling in hit a wall at Eastend, Bundoran, in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Gardai said the man and woman who died, aged in their 20s, were passengers in the car.

A woman and two men, also in their 20s, suffered serious injuries and are being treated in hospital in Sligo.

Pictures showed a blue car with severe damage to the front and back close to the base of a pole.

Garda forensic collision investigation officers attended the scene and the road was closed to traffic.

The Peugeot car appeared to have hit a yellow brick perimeter wall and partially demolished it.

The engine and a rear axle had dislodged and were lying in the street.

The vehicle came to rest a short distance away up the road.
