By Aakanksha Surve

Gardai have renewed their appeal for witnesses after a man in his 30s died in a horror crash in Co Kildare.

The two-car smash happened on the M7 northbound in Naas at approximately 9.35pm between Junction 10 and Junction 9A on September 25, 2021.

One car collided with the central median and a second car collided with the first vehicle.

A male pedestrian who was seriously injured during the collision was rushed to Tallaght University Hospital where he later passed away.

It is understood the man had exited his own vehicle to assist with the collision.

A garda spokeswoman said: "Gardaí believe there are a number of motorists who may have witnessed the collision that have not yet come forward. Gardaí are appealing to anyone who has any information in relation to this incident to contact them.

"Any road users who were travelling on the M7 northbound on the evening on Saturday, 25th September 2021 between 9pm and 10pm, and who may also have camera (dashcam) footage, is asked to make it available to investigating Gardaí.

"Anyone with information should contact Naas Garda station on 045 884300, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station."
