    Dangerous stretch of road, I drive it most days as the gf lives about 2 minutes from the accident.

    Shocking news at the worst time of year for it to happen

    Thoughts with the family and friends..

    Awful, thoughts go out to family and friends.

    Roads are extremely slippy at the moment folks, take it easy.

    Know alot of people from that area, and D'patrick and K'leagh. Nightmare for all those involved. Is a really bad road - I think partly due to long straights and then twisty sections - add to that slippy roads and it's easy to understand why it's becoming a blackspot.

    It's not only the roads - it's the nuts holding the wheel too. Take it easy!

    Thoughts go out to those families, heart-wrenching news that! :(

    just watched the TV clip on the news story.

    Thoughts with the family.

    looks horrific, and as if the evo was coming out of a junction and the 3 series coming down the road and just drove in through the back of the evo. cant believe how much it just split in half.. terrible

    Older Evos aren't built half as well as recent ones, they're pretty bad in a crash. :( If it'd been a X they'd all probably have walked away...

    just old cars in general dont have the safety equipment like modern ones, and perhaps more so the older sports models which took a standardish car and gave it the performance spec

    looks like a terrible terrible incident, there's never a good time of year for summat like this but giving the proximity to xmas its unbelievable, a pedestrain killed in armagh yesterday evening too.

    Sad times for all the families, thoughts are with them.
