There is heartbreaking news this morning, as it has been confirmed that a young mum has died following a car crash which left her two children in hospital.


The incident, which involved a truck and a car, occurred yesterday on the Kilberry to Nobber Road at approximately 1pm.


The 26-year-old was taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda where she sadly passed away.


Her two year-old son was also taken to Drogheda hospital while the eldest - a six-year-old - was rushed to Crumlin, where he is said to be in a critical condition, according to the Irish Independent.



The driver of the truck was unharmed.


"Three occupants (two, six and 26-years-old)  of the car were brought to Drogheda and Crumlin Hospitals (one male juvenile and the female driver in Drogheda; one male juvenile in Crumlin)," a statement from the Gardaí said.


"There was no one else in the car."
