Bray People - - BRAY PEOPLE -

GAR­DAI ARE ap­peal­ing for wit­nesses to last week’s fa­tal car crash on the N11.

On Sun­day, Au­gust 23, at 2.30 a.m. in the morn­ing, 16-year-old Ja­son Cana­van of Inchicore, Dublin was killed when the car he was trav­el­ling in struck a tele­phone pole at Bal­li­na­cor East. The driver of the ve­hi­cle, a 20 year old man from Dublin, was taken to St. Vin­cent’s Hospi­tal.

The un­fin­ished sec­tion of the N11 where the ac­ci­dent took place is a no­to­ri­ous blackspot for ac­ci­dents. In a ten year pe­riod up to 2008 24 peo­ple were killed on this stretch of road, with 25 se­ri­ous col­li­sions.

The gar­dai are now looking for as­sis­tance as they con­tinue to in­ves­ti­gate the cause of the ac­ci­dent. Any­one trav­el­ling on the stretch of road be­tween Jack White’s Pub and Lil Doyle’s Pub on the N11 around the time of the ac­ci­dent or in the vicin­ity of Barn­dar­rig Ser­vice Sta­tion should con­tact Wick­low Garda Sta­tion on (0404) 60140 or the Garda Con­fi­den­tial Line on 1800 666 111.
