Two dead after an accident with trucks and two cars on the A1 in front of Newry

Two people died following a serious accident between a truck and two cars on the A1 on the outskirts of Newry.

The PSNI confirmed that a man at the age of 80 and a woman at the age of 40 were killed in the crash.

It is assumed that the two deceased were traveling in a car and both come from the Newry area.

The man died at the scene and a woman died a short time later in the hospital.

The accident consisted of a truck, a silver Skoda Fabia and a bronze Ford Focus.

It happened around 2:45 pm on the northbound lane at Moneymore Road Junction.

Police have closed the road in both directions between Rathfriland and Donaghmore Road near Dromantine following the collision between a car and a truck.

Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) said it received a 999 phone call at 2:33 pm on Friday after reporting a collision with two vehicles.

NIAS sent a paramedic, two emergency crews, a non-emergency crew, and a BASICS doctor to the scene. The Charity Air Ambulance was also tasked to the incident.

After assessment and initial treatment on site, a patient was taken by ambulance to the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast and the Daisy Hill Hospital in Newry.

The patient at Daisy Hill Hospital is in a stable condition.

All southbound traffic can drive to GroveHill Road near Loughbrickland before being diverted off the lane.

Northern traffic is diverted into Newry along Tandragee Road.

All truck vehicles are diverted to Hillsborough / Sprucefield.

Delays are expected on many roads in the area, so motorists are advised to avoid them if possible.
