A 34 year old man has been seriously injured when the cattle truck he was driving went out of control and overturned at Ferrycarrig Bridge this afternoon. A number of cattle died in the collision.
A parked car that was unoccupied at the time was also involved in the incident.
Emergency services were quickly on the scene.
Ferrycarrig Bridge remains closed. Traffic is quite heavy on approach in both directions, particularly southbound with a tailback of approximately 3km. As a result, traffic is also busy heading into Wexford town from the Ferrybank side.
Gardaí are appealing for anyone who was travelling on the road from 1.45pm to 2pm – or anyone who was in the area and may have witnessed the incident – to contact Wexford Garda Station on 053 916 5200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
