Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

A MO­TOR­CY­CLIST had a mirac­u­lous es­cape with his life in a hor­ror crash on the South Wick­low-North Wex­ford border on Satur­day morn­ing, which saw his mo­tor­bike torn in two.

The mo­tor­cy­clist from the Ki­lanerin area, who is in his late twen­ties, suf­fered bro­ken bones in the crash which oc­curred at around 7.30 a.m. at Scar­nagh Cross near Inch on the old N11.

His bike, a car, and a mo­tor trike were in­volved in a col­li­sion at the cross­roads.

His in­juries were de­scribed as ‘not life threat­en­ing.’

Wit­nesses to the after­math of the crash com­mented that it was a mir­a­cle that the mo­tor­cy­clist sur­vived the crash, as the mo­tor­bike was found in two sep­a­rate pieces at the scene.

The rider on the three wheel mo­tor­bike, also a male in his late twen­ties, was brought to hospi­tal where he was also treated for his in­juries.

Emer­gency crews in­clud­ing two am­bu­lances and Gar­dai were called to the scene. The scene was sealed off for a short pe­riod of time while the in­jured were tended to. Con­di­tions on the morn­ing were re­ported to be dry.
