The emergency services are at the scene of what appears to have been a serious traffic accident on the main Derry to Letterkenny road near Newtowncunningham.

At shortly after nine o’clock, at least two ambulances and another emergency services vehicle were at the scene, and three fire tenders arrived minutes later.

Ambulance personnel were at the driver’s door of a small saloon car which seemed to have been very badly damaged.

The incident is on the Letterkenny side of the Newtowncunningham junction on a stretch of road which has seen a number of accidents in recent years.
