WOMAN IS KILLED AS ROADS TOLL SOARS.

Byline: PAT FLANAGAN

THIS was the horror scene yesterday after a weekend of bloodshed on the roads.

A woman died in the crash when her car collided with another vehicle on the N2 at Finglas, Dublin.

Road safety boss Gay Byrne yesterday called the mounting death toll as "unacceptable and frustrating".

On Saturday, biker Padraig Campbell, 32, from Moate, Co Meath, was killed during a practice lap at a race. And fellow biker Aiden Treanor, 43, from Emyvale, Co Monaghan, died in a collision with a car at Aghalisk.

On Sunday, a Scottish trucker in his 40s was killed when he crashed into a ditch at Cootehill, Co Monaghan, and a man died in a collision at Ballydooley, Co Roscommon.

Elsewhere, in Co Cork, a pedestrian was killed on Sunday night when he was hit by a vehicle at Grange, and a woman rider in her 50s was in a critical condition last night after a collision between her horse and a lorry near Fermoy.
