Once again there was a car crash at the Corina Cross on Sunday evening, January 25, known locally as the Forge. Luckily, it was not a serious crash with no personal injuries reported. This is not the first mishap at this location and probably not the last. It would be safe to say that over fifty crashes have occurred at this point over the past fifteen years. Fortunately, there has never been a very serious accident at this black spot but are the authorities waiting for something far more serious to happen before taking action to make this crossroads safer. There are at least a half dozen mishaps at Corina Cross every year over the past fifteen or twenty years. There was quite a large force of gardai and firemen (with two fire units) present who were busy for over an hour keeping traffic moving and clearing the road. Presumably, if there is a serious accident at this point our elected representatives and personnel from the roads authority will be loud in their promises to have a major re-alignment of the junction carried out. No doubt a major accident waiting to happen.
