A 20-year-old groom has been killed in a fireball three-car crash just hours before he was due to get married. 

Myles Harty was in the front passenger seat of a car that smashed into a pole at around 1am at Cragmore on the Askeaton to Rathkeale Road in Limerick. 

It is believed the crash happened after another car drove the wrong way down a motorway when a vehicle was seen driving toward oncoming traffic on the M6 at 7.30pm on Thursday.
