Castlebar / Pontoon road remains closed this morning following collision

The road remains closed this morning on the Castlebar side of Pontoon, following a collision yesterday afternoon.

Initial reports suggested a jeep and bicycle had collided, but it’s now emerged that the jeep was involved in a single-vehicle collision at Knockalanna, Pontoon and the cyclist came upon the accident.

The driver of the jeep was taken to Mayo University Hospital.

Gardai say the R310 Pontoon- Castlebar road remains closed this morning for forensic examination, and diversions are in place.
