Newry’s Camlough Road

Between 9.20pm and 9.35pm a white coloured Nissan Zafira was struck by a maroon coloured Honda – which is believed to be an Accord model – on the Carnagat Road, approaching the junction of Camlough Road, and again on Camlough Road. The Zafira was again struck by the Honda in the Derrybeg estate and spun round. The Zafira proceeded back on to Camlough Road, towards Newry City, with the Honda following. The Zafira was again struck by the Honda as it approached the Camlough Road roundabout. As both vehicles entered the roundabout the Honda was in collision with a silver Volkswagen Polo which was extensively damaged. The Honda and Zafira proceeded on to Edward Street, Newry, where the Honda turned and went back up the Camlough Road. Five males, aged 23, 26, 31, 32 and 32 years old, were arrested and released on bail pending further enquiries.
