Man dies in Poyntzpass collision


A man in his 60s has died following a collision in Poyntzpass, Co Armagh, on Wednesday evening.

The single vehicle collision on the Tannyoky Road was reported to police at around 6.45pm yesterday.

The man who was killed is the 61st person to die on Ulster’s roads this year.

This time last year 69 people had been killed on our roads.

A PSNI spokesman said the road remained closed until around 4.30am this morning while police carried out an examination of the scene.

It has since fully reopened.

Police are appealing for anyone who witnesses the collision involving a blue Ford Focus to contact police by calling the non-emergency number 101.
