Gardai appeal to driver of silver Nissan who may have seen fatal Kildare crash

Gardai in Kildare are appealing for witnesses following a fatal collision on the R445 near Monasterevin near the Kildare Laois border on Friday, August 17.

The collision occurred around 2:15pm and involved a black Isuzu crew cab 4x4 vehicle and a motorcyclist.

Gardai are particularly anxious to speak to the driver of a silver Nissan Micra which was travelling behind the Isuzu in the direction of Monasterevin.

The man who died in a road traffic accident last Friday evening was named as Christopher Fitzgerald.

Mr Fitzgerald had been living in Walsh Island in Offaly, although he was originally from the Finglas area.

Mr Fitzgerald, who was in his 50s, was fatally injured when his motorcycle collided with a 4x4 vehicle. He was taken by ambulance to Naas General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The driver and sole occupant of the 4x4 (male in his 60's) was also taken by ambulance to Naas Hospital. He is from Mountmellick and is understood to have escaped shocked but unscathed. Garda forensic collision investigators carried out an investigation on the scene.

Investigating Gardaí are appealing for witnesses or anyone with information or drivers who may have ‘Dash Cam’ footage to contact Kildare Garda Station on 045- 521222, the Garda Confidential Line 1 800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
