The PSNI in Newry and Mourne has released a photograph showing the aftermath of an accident on the A1 Dublin Road this afternoon.
A badly damaged crash bar, which is now being repaired.
The accident happened near the southbound turnoff for Armagh.
The PSNI reported it as a “major incident” and emergency services – paramedics and fire personnel – attended the scene.
Police have now confirmed that, fortunately, no-one was seriously injured.
But the picture shows that this crash barrier took the full force of the collision and prevented a vehicle plummeting 30 feet on to the road below.
Police have again urged motorists to take care on the road, saying: “Slow Down, Respect everyone’s journey and pay attention when driving!”
