Is it teething time for your little one?


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."


Gardaí Navan are appealing for witnesses to contact them in Navan on 048 9036100, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
