Gardai have confirmed that they made an arrest in relation to the case of a young Abbeyleix teenager who was tragically killed in a car accident last August.
Adam Case, 16, lost his life in a road accident in Tipperary when he was in a single vehicle incident that occurred at Boston on the Ballingarry North to Cloughjordan road.
And now Gardai have confirmed that on Wednesday March 21, they arrested a man under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
The man, aged in his 20s, was released that same day and a file has been prepared for the DPP.
He was fatally injured when the car he was a rear seat passenger crashed into a tree.
Adam was pronounced dead at the scene and his body was taken to University Hospital Limerick.
He was a student in St Brendan’s Community School Birr and a past student of the Abbeyleix South School.
His death prompted an outpouring of grief for the popular young teenager at the time.
And Adam was later laid to rest in Dunkerrin, Co Offaly.
The two other occupants, a 22-year-old male and a 17-years-old female, were taken to Tullamore Hospital and University Hospital Limerick.
Speaking at the time, a garda spokesman said the older man was in a “serious condition”.
