Woman hit by car driving down wrong side of Co Armagh road

Police have urged drivers to be careful after a woman was struck by a car driving down the wrong side of the road in Lurgan, Co Armagh.

The woman was the second person struck by a vehicle in the area in two days.

A PSNI spokesperson said that the accidents were being caused by drivers becoming impatient waiting for trains to pass.

"We have all been here, stuck in traffic waiting on those pesky trains going past (pictured)," the spokesperson said.

"Unfortunately people get very impatient and take to driving down the wrong side of the road to get to their turn in.

"This has led to a young woman being struck by a vehicle in Lurgan today.

"That's the second pedestrian involved in a similar incident in two days.

"Please drive carefully and pay attention to your surroundings."
