Car crashes into house at Creggan Hill

Police in Derry are at the scene of a serious road traffic accident.

It’s understood two vehicles are involved in the incident in which a car crashed into a house.

SDLP Northland Councillor Sean Carr says the accident is likely to cause disruption for local residents.

Speaking from the scene of the crash, Mr Carr said: “This is a particularly nasty accident in which a car ran into another vehicle just feet from houses near Helen Street.

“My thoughts are with those involved and we can only pray that no one has sustained any significant injuries. I will continue to liaise with the Emergency Services.

“A number of emergency services are on the scene at the minute and I would therefore advise motorists to seek an alternative route through the area until police and medics can finish their job.”
