Appeal for witnesses to border accident

The Police Ombudsman's Office in Northern Ireland have launched an appeal for information about a collision between a police car and another vehicle just north of the border, near Newry, which left a young woman with serious injuries.

The collision happened shortly after midnight on 10 May 2019, near the Morgan's Fuel depot on the Dublin Road outside Newry. The cars involved were a marked police car and a red BMW.

A spokesman for the Police Ombudsman's Office said: 'We have now received a complaint about the incident, and would like to hear from anyone who saw what happened. We understand that there were quite a few people in the area at the time, and that some may have been from Dundalk.'

He added: 'I would appeal to anyone who saw what happened, or who may even have taken some video footage, to contact our witness appeal line on 0800 032 7880.'
