Vile social media hoax reporting three deaths and multiple injuries in Armagh accident

A sick and cruel hoax has been circulating widely on social media this morning (Thursday) regarding a multi-car crash in Armagh.

It reports that three people have died and seven others have been injured in the incident.

And it uses a photograph of the actual scene of the horrific car crash in which Tassagh student Danica Nugent lost her life in Crossmaglen in September.

The vile post has no truth to it whatsoever but, despite this, is circulating widely.

Police confirmed to Armagh I that no accident had occurred.

The site posting the information is

The reason for posting is unknown.

One person, who brought the post to the attention of Armagh I, branded those responsible “sick bastards”.
