How do you check a truck for a serious crash?

RTE has obtained footage of the truck involved in the fatal crash on the RTE Newsroom channel on Thursday.

The crash happened in the early hours of Thursday morning.

It is not clear if the truck was involved in a collision.

RTE reporter and reporter in the crash unit, David Gower, tweeted: We have got a clip from our truck which shows it doing a wheel-over manoeuvre on the road.

That footage has been taken by a witness.

The clip is still live and we’ll keep updating it as we get it.

A video from the scene was published on Twitter.

There is no word on whether the truck driver was wearing a helmet.

The incident happened at about 1.45am.

The truck was travelling in a southbound lane when it hit a tree on the right side of the road and went airborne.

It then hit a fence and went down a hill before rolling on the left side of a road.

A man from New Hampshire was killed in the accident.

The driver of the car involved was taken to hospital in a serious condition.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
