Car flips over on the N11

Wexford People - - NEWS -

EMER­GENCY ser­vices were quick to re­spond to an in­ci­dent which saw a ve­hi­cle flip com­pletely onto its side just out­side Oyle­gate on the N11. The in­ci­dent took place shortly af­ter 6 p.m. on a sunny sum­mer’s evening and in­volved only one ve­hi­cle, which was head­ing north on the En­nis­cor­thy side of the vil­lage.

While the fire ser­vice, am­bu­lance and gar­daí were quick to ar­rive at the scene, it ap­pears the in­ci­dent was rel­a­tively mi­nor and the driver, a man aged in his early six­ties from just out­side En­nis­cor­thy, was left shaken but un­in­jured.

A spokesman for En­nis­cor­thy gar­daí said that the man was checked over by paramedics at the scene, but did not re­quire fur­ther med­i­cal at­ten­tion.

Gar­daí said that no cause for the ac­ci­dent had been de­ter­mined, how­ever, there was an ex­tremely low sun that evening and it’s pos­si­ble that it may have played a part. The scene was cleared rel­a­tively quickly.
