Gardai in the midlands are appealing for witnesses after a motorcyclist died in a crash on Sunday evening.
It is understood the rider, a man in his 30s, and his bike left the main Mullingar to Rochfortbridge road and smashed into a ditch.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the incident on the R400 at Gainstown, Co Westmeath.
Gardai and emergency services were alerted shortly after 5pm and attended the scene.
The deceased was removed to Mullingar Hospital and arrangements are being made for a post-mortem exam.
Garda forensic investigators examined the crash scene Sunday night and local traffic diversions were in place.
Anyone with information, especially drivers with camera footage, is urged to call Mullingar Garda Station (044) 938 4000 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
