A woman is in a critical condition following a crash on the N4 earlier this evening. The collision involving an articulated lorry and a car occurred on the N4 at the Charlotte Brooke Roundabout on the Longford/Newtownforbes road at around 4.45pm.
The woman was taken to Midlands Hospital Tullamore following the crash. Two young children, age 2 and ten months, who were in the car with the woman were also taken to hospital but are believed to have escaped serious injury. The N4 was closed for a time after the accident but has now re-opened.
