A 49-year-old man from Latvia died when the lorry he was driving collided with three houses in Ireland’s County Monaghan, the Garda Press Office has announced.
Igors Korpačovs was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which occurred at about 10:30 a.m. May 1 on Main Street in Emyvale, police said. Emyvale, about 140 kilometers northwest of Dublin, is near the border with Northern Ireland.
Irish broadcaster RTÉ reported that Korpačovs was driving a milk tanker and may have lost control of the vehicle when a tire burst.
Korpačovs lived in Newtownstewart, County Tyrone. His body was taken to Navan General Hospital, police said.
Two of the houses were seriously damaged, police said, and a 13-year-old boy was at home in one of them. However, he was not hurt.
