Four members of a United States family have been killed in a road crash in the Republic of Ireland.
GARDAI and emergency services have rushed to the scene of a "serious" collision close to New Ross in Co Wexford this evening.
The collision occurred on the N25 New Ross to Ballinaboola road at Begerin Hill (approximately 2-3 miles from Ballinaboule).
New Ross in Wexford is a popular stop for many U.S. tourists because of the Dunbrody starvation ship and the area's famous links to President John F Kennedy.
There had been a number of crashes along the road in recent years, he said.
They were Irish but had been living in IL for a number of years, according to RTÉ.
The collision, which occurred between a auto and lorry at approximately 6.30, claimed the life of the four individuals - three men and one woman - all of whom were travelling in the vehicle.
They were all the occupants of the vehicle, and were pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver and a passenger in the truck were uninjured.
A couple in their 70s and their two sons aged in their 40s, died when their auto was in collision with a articulated lorry on a main road at around 6.30pm on Monday, December 4.
Motorists were urged to avoid the area given the road closure and the lengthy diversions in place.
