Truck overturned after colliding with a lorry in Wexford

Emergency services are currently attending the scene of a crash in County Wexford.

The incident, involving two trucks, occurred on the N25 just outside Wexford - between the Whitford and Maldron Hotel roundabouts on the ring road.

As reported by The Independent, "It appears that a large flatbed truck collided with another truck which was towing a large flashing, warning message for hedge cutting which was taking place just ahead on the hard shoulder.

"The flatbed truck flipped onto its side and was positioned sideways on the road when the National Ambulance Service arrived and sought to check on the condition of the driver.

"GardaΓ­ subsequently arrived on the scene and began directing traffic, with substantial tailbacks stretching back to the roundabouts in both directions on the N25.

"It is understood that the driver of the truck which overturned suffered minor injuries, while the driver of the other truck towing the warning sign was said to be shaken, but relatively unharmed.

"Emergency services remain at the scene, but motorists are asked to avoid the area as traffic remains heavy."

Beat News can confirm that GardaΓ­ has a stop/go system in place and hope to have the road fully accessible within the next 60 to 90 minutes.
