Gardaí are investigating after two people died yesterday when the car they were travelling in hit a wall and was "engulfed" in flames.

The bodies were discovered in a burnt-out car at Quinspool, Co Clare, in the early hours of yesterday.

Garda sources initially said they believed the bodies were that of "a child and an adult". However, in an official statement gardaí said they were "not in a position to identify the deceased individuals" due to the extent of their burns.

Last night a senior garda said: "We have names of people but no post-mortem done. Unfortunately, this is out of our hands. The post-mortem will take place in the morning. Until we get the ball rolling on DNA, etc, it's very difficult to say."

There was widespread trauma in the Thomondgate area where it is believed the two deceased were from.

Identities

They had been named locally by several sources but it emerged late last night that the identities of the deceased was not clear.

Two men aged in their 20s who were found outside the vehicle, but who Garda sources believe were travelling in the car, were being treated for serious burns and head injuries at St James's Hospital and University Hospital Limerick.

Pat O'Halloran, who runs a takeaway in Thomondgate in Limerick, confirmed his cousin Adam Carver was one of those seriously injured.

"Adam is a UK national but his grandparents live here in Limerick. He only came over to visit the family in the last few weeks," he said.

Gardaí said the car, which was travelling between Limerick and Parteen, "hit a wall and was engulfed and destroyed by fire" at around 12.30am yesterday. The scene of the crash is on the outskirts of Limerick.

When emergency first responders arrived at the crash site, they found the two men in their 20s outside the car and seriously injured.

However, after the fire was extinguished the vehicle's burnt-out shell revealed two bodies inside.

The bodies remained inside the car at the scene for several hours before being transported by hearse to University Hospital Limerick for post-mortem examinations.

The two examinations are expected to take place this morning, gardaí said.

One of the injured men is believed to have made his way to a nearby house and raised the occupants and they then contacted emergency services.

Gardaí appealed for witnesses, "particularly any motorists who were travelling in the area between 12am-1am who may have dashcam footage".

Agony

A source said one of the injured men was found by emergency services "in agony" having sustained "burns" and a "serious head injury".

The car was completely gutted in the fire, and a Garda forensic team spent the day analysing the vehicle and the surrounding area.

A Garda source said they hoped the results of the forensic examinations would provide them with "more definite answers" as to exactly what happened.

"The forensic officers will examine the entire scene and analyse any strike marks to try to figure out the sequence of events that led to the collision," they said.

Gardaí said that "a family liaison officer has been appointed and an incident room has been set up at Mayorstone garda station".

A senior garda said they would await the results of DNA tests and dental records before they were able to formally identify the two bodies.
