TWO Irish men have died in Canada following a car crash where their vehicle overturned.
Local media has reported that emergency services were called to the scene of an overturned vehicle in Melita, in the north eastern province of Manitoba, at 10.30am on Saturday morning.
The two men, aged 33 and 42 and identified as Irish, were pronounced dead at the scene.
It is unclear whether the men were living in Canada, however the Irish Mirror have reported the two men have connections to Co. Cork.
The Irish Department of Foreign Affairs has said they were aware of the crash.
"We are aware of media reports that two Irish people have been killed in a car accident in Canada.
We have received no requests for consular assistance. We stand ready to provide such assistance if requested," a spokesperson told The Irish Post.
The Royal Mounted Canadian Police in Manitoba have appealed for information regarding the crash.
