Bray People - - Bray People - Mary FOG­A­RTY

THE DRIVER of a se­cu­rity van had to be cut from his over­turned ve­hi­cle by fire­fight­ers last Tues­day evening af­ter a dra­matic three- ve­hi­cle col­li­sion on the Boghall Road, which stopped traf­fic for over an hour.

A source in the Bray fire ser­vice, which had two units at the scene, said that it ap­peared two cars and the van had some­how crashed in to each other and the van ended up on its side af­ter the ac­ci­dent.

‘ We then had to cut the trapped van driver free,’ said the source, adding that while there did not ap­pear to be any se­ri­ous in­juries to any­one in­volved af­ter the smash, the man driv­ing the van had been com­plain­ing to fire­men of back pain on the night.

Res­i­dents in the area said that the dis­rup­tion to the busy road be­cause of its forced clo­sure was ex­ten­sive, even though the in­ci­dent hap­pened late in the evening when traf­fic would not have been at its high­est point of the day.

As well as two units of the Bray fire bri­gade, four squad cars were present at the scene of the ac­ci­dent, which occurred at around 10 p. m. along the Moun­tain­view Drive stretch of the Boghall Road.
