A 15-year-old girl has died and four other people injured in a two-car collision in Co Tipperary.

The girl, who was a passenger in one of the cars, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which occurred around 6.45pm yesterday on the R503 at Rearcross.

Her body was removed to University Hospital Limerick, where a post-mortem examination is due to be carried out.

Three other people in the car, a man and a woman both aged in their 20s, and a girl aged in her mid-teens, were taken to University Hospital Limerick with non-life threatening injuries.

A woman who was driving the second car was also taken to UHL, where her injuries are also believed to be non-life threatening.
