Teenage road victim named


THE teenager who died in Inishowen last night after the car he was driving crashed has been named as Jamie Doherty.

The 14-year-old was killed when the car spun out of control on a dirt road at Tullyally at Upper Clar. 


The teenager, the eldest of a family of three boys, had just finished his second year at Moville Community School and was starting his summer holidays.

It is understood Jamie had taken the car from his home outside Moville and driven it to the dirt road just before 5pm where, a short while later, he lost control of the vehicle and was killed instantly.

He was the only person in the car at the time and no other vehicle was involved. 

The schoolboy’s remains were taken to Letterkenny University Hospital and a post-mortem is expected to take place today.

His mother and father, Shane and Evelyn were today being comforted by their many neighbours and friends still in shock by the tragedy.
