Police appeal for witnesses to crash which left seven people in hospital

Police are appealing for information and witnesses to a crash in Armagh which left seven people in hospital last weekend.

On Saturday, June 30, at around 4.30pm, there was a serious road accident on the Moy Road, close to Traynor’s scrapyard, which result in the seven people – including two young boys – being rushed to hospital.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “Whilst the scene is long since closed, and all casualties are now stable, we are now working to establish the cause of the crash.

“For that, we need your help. If you were on the Armagh Road at that time and saw a green Ford Fusion or a Black Vauxhall Astra, whether you remember seeing them or have dash cam footage of them, we would like to hear from you.

“The reference number is 1123 of 30/06/18 and you can get us on 101. Equally, if you have any information around the incident and haven’t yet spoken to us, please get in touch.”

Paying tribute to colleagues from Fermanagh who assisted, the spokesperson added: “Were it not for them being there, and their swift actions on scene, as well as those who stopped to help, the right resources would have taken much longer to get in place and we could have been talking about multiple fatalities.

“During this incident we saw rapid response paramedics, the Air Ambulance, NIAS crews, NIFRS crews, our photography and mapping branches, a Senior Investing Officer, and our own crews from Fermanagh, Armagh and Lurgan attending.

“This was a real team effort, subsequently enhanced yet further by the incredible NHS staff at CAH and the Royal Victoria Hospital A&E and ICU departments.”
