A car ended up in a field at Ballylisk - one of the five recent road accidents in the area.

Residents in the Ballylisk area - on the Tandragee side of the main Laurelvale roundabout - have logged at least five accidents over the past seven weeks.

The latest was at the weekend when a Peugeot - believed to have a driver and a passenger - smashed into a telegraph pole, leaving the occupants badly shaken, but not too badly injured.

A month ago, another car, thought to be a Vauxhall, was in collision with a telegraph pole near the main power station. The pole had to be replaced, the car was extensively damaged, and an ambulance was in attendance. The condition of the driver is unknown.

Around the same time, a Volkswagen was in collision with the pillar of a house, the driver of the car was badly injured and the pillar disintegrated. The car finished up in the garden of the house.

Three weeks ago, a Renault skidded on the bend close to Ballylisk Orange Hall, it went out of control and went through a hedge, ending up in a field. Again, there were no serious injuries.

And recently, a Ford Focus was involved in a similar scare.

One local resident, who has been monitoring the crashes, said, “It seems to be a combination of sweeping bends and mud on the roads. We are worried that someone will be killed before long.”
