Markethill crash

Emergency services are currently attending the scene of a two-vehicle collision in Markethill this afternoon (Friday).

The incident happened shortly after 2.40pm and involved two cars directly outside the main gates to Gosford Forest Park – along the Gosford Road.

At present, the road has not been closed but debris has been sprayed across both lanes, with one lane currently blocked.

Traffic is queuing in both directions with motorists advised to avoid the road altogether.

One eye-witness told Armagh I: “While the crash doesn’t look to anything major, it is causing serious tailbacks, in the direction Newry especially.”
