Two other casualties sustained injuries 'not believed to be life-threatening'

The driver of one of the cars involved in a two-vehicle crash in Lurgan yesterday (Sunday) remains in a critical condition in hospital, police have said.

Two other people – the driver and a passenger in the other car – were also taken to hospital but their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Meanwhile, police are appealing for information and witnesses.

Inspector Mills said: “Police received a report shortly before 4.50pm on Sunday, 2nd July of the collision involving a grey BMW 320d M Sport and a red Suzuki Alto.

“Officers attended, alongside colleagues from the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and Northern Ireland Ambulance Service.

“The driver of the Suzuki Alto remains in a critical condition in hospital at this time.

“Meanwhile, the driver of the BMW 320d M Sport and a passenger required medical treatment for injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

“We are appealing to anyone who was travelling in the Eastway area around this time and date and who has dash-cam footage, to contact police on 101, and quote reference number 1228 of 02/07/23.”

A spokesperson for the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service (NIFRS) said three fire appliances, two from Lurgan and one from Armagh, attended the incident.

“Firefighters used cutting equipment to rescue two of the casualties,” he said. “A third casualty had managed to exit their vehicle when firefighters arrived.

“All three casualties were taken to hospital by ambulance.”

Officers from the PSNI and a crew from Air Ambulance NI also attended the incident, which took place between roundabout 1 and the roundabout at Tannaghmore Gardens.

Firefighters left the scene at 6.02pm,  but the road remained closed until the early hours of this morning.

The road has since reopened.
