Road closed after car crashes into electricity pole and lands on roof in Bessbrook

'Circumstances are unclear but local residents have said those in the car have absconded'

A car has landed on its roof after hitting an electricity pole in Bessbrook.

The high street from the Mill Hill is currently closed with debris spread over a wide area of the road.

Local Sinn Fein Councillor Declan Murphy said at this stage it looked like the car had collided with the pole.

He said: “Circumstances are unclear but local residents have said those in the car have absconded.

“It is unclear at the minute if there are any injuries.

“This is a busy stretch of road for both vehicles and pedestrians.

“I would ask anyone using the access to high street to follow any diversions in place.”
