A woman has been rushed to hospital after a serious road crash on the main Armagh Road from Portadown.

A van and car were in collision just two miles from the town at the Dobbin Rd just before 8am this morning.

Firefighters used hydraulic cutting equipment to release a woman who was heavily trapped as a result of the crash.

A Fire Services spokesperson said: “She was taken to hospital via ambulance.”

A spokesperson for Craigavon Area Hospital said the woman is in a ‘stable’ condition.

Two fire Appliances from Portadown and one from Lurgan Fire Station attended the scene.

The incident was dealt with at 8.20am and the road is now clear.

This is the second accident on that stretch of road this week.

A car and a tractor towing a slurry tanker were in collision on Wednesday morning. One man is being treated at the Royal Victoria Hospital for serious injuries.

Photographer Tony Hendron said: “This is the second accident at almost the same spot within days. Some debris from Wednesday’s accident was clearly visible on the grass verge across the road from this morning’s collision.”
