Mir­a­cle as driv­ers of three ve­hi­cles walk away from a hor­ror smash

Wexford People - - NEWS -

THE driv­ers of three ve­hi­cles were lucky to es­cape rel­a­tively un­in­jured af­ter a hor­ror crash at Kyle, Ou­lart on Tues­day evening last. While that stretch of road is no stranger to ac­ci­dents, this one in­volv­ing a truck and two cars was par­tic­u­larly bad and mirac­u­lously all driv­ers were able to walk away with just mi­nor cuts and bruises.

The in­ci­dent took place at around 7.30 p.m. and it is be­lieved that one of the cars pulled onto the main road and was hit by a truck, which sub­se­quently smashed into a ve­hi­cle on the op­po­site side of the road be­fore end­ing up down in a gripe at the side of the road with its cab off.

The truck, which was haul­ing hay bales at the time, was left smashed up be­yond recog­ni­tion but luck­ily the driver, from the Bal­ly­canew area, was left rel­a­tively un­in­jured. Sim­i­larly the driv­ers of both cars, from Gorey and Kil­tealy, were left shaken but not badly hurt. All three were taken by Am­bu­lance to Wex­ford Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal as a pre­cau­tion, but were dis­charged later that night.

En­nis­cor­thy Gar­daí and Fire Ser­vice were quick on the scene along with the am­bu­lance and the road was sealed off for a num­ber of hours while the sig­nif­i­cant amount of de­bris and diesel was cleared from the scene. Wex­ford County Coun­cil were also called to grit the road as a re­sult of freez­ing con­di­tions which were set­ting in.

Gar­daí car­ried out an ex­am­i­na­tion at the scene and a full in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the in­ci­dent is un­der way, how­ever, a garda spokesman con­firmed that no­body had been ar­rested and that al­co­hol was not con­sid­ered to have been a fac­tor.
