A 58-year-old woman remains in a critical condition at Belfast’s Royal Victoria Hospital after a serious crash in Lurgan on Sunday.

The two-vehicle collision involved a silver Nissan Micra and a white Peugeot van on the Lough Road near the M1 junction.

The woman, the driver of the car, was taken to hospital via air ambulance. A 19-year-old woman, a passenger, was also taken to hospital with injuries to her head, arm and shoulder. She has since been discharged.

Meanwhile Sinn Fein Cllr Keith Haughian said financial pressures should not compromise road safety. “Sinn Féin raised concerns with the Department regarding the lack of pedestrian barriers on Lake St and the need for traffic calming measures in both Lake St and the Antrim Rd. Residents have made it clear that the speed of traffic is a major concern. Whilst a study has been done, some road users continue to speed. There are no traffic calming measures or pedestrian barriers here.”.
