The Irish student who passed away after a single vehicle collision in Canada last Wednesday has been named as Meaghan Miller.
The 21-year-old was found dead at the site of the crash, north of Maidstone, Saskatchewan on a highway at about 10.30am local time on Wednesday.
Meaghan was the only person in the vehicle and the cause of the crash is being investigated by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Meaghan grew up in Malahide and studied agricultural science at University College Dublin (UCD). She was on a summer work programme in Canada, working with horses. She began horse riding when she 6 years old and worked for the Kilronan Equestrian Centre in Swords for a number of years when she was a teenager.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Foreign Affairs said it was “aware of the case” and was “providing ongoing consular assistance” to the family.
