Main Armagh to Portadown Road fully open again after collision between lorry and car

Police thank public for patience after lengthy operation

The main road between Portadown and RichHill has now fully reopened after Wednesday morning’s accident.

The road remained closed throughout the day and evening after a collision involving a car and a lorry.

One woman was left in a critical condition  following the collision close to the junction with the Mullinasilla Road.

Two other men remain were in a stable condition after sustaining injuries after the collision shortly after 7am.

The lorry, which was carrying what is believed to have been animal blood, crashed down the embankment close to Richhill Tyre Centre.

Due to the nature of the cargo and the position of the lorry, the road remained close all day to allow police to deal with the aftermath of the collision.

It reopened during the early hours in time for the morning commute.

A PSNI spokesperson has thanked the public for their patience during the course of the recovery operation.

Thank you for your patience while the road was closed.
