Donnelly says thoughts of entire community with loved ones of crash victims

Alliance West Tyrone Councillor Stephen Donnelly has said the thoughts of the entire community are with the loved ones of three young men who have died in a car crash in Garvaghy.

The trio, in their 20s, died at the scene of the crash involving a car and a lorry on the Omagh Road around 1:50am today (Monday). A fourth man, also in his 20s, has been taken to hospital after sustaining serious injuries.

“The entire community in Tyrone is devastated by this crash and the sad passing of three young men, and the injury to another,” said Stephen.

“I want to express my condolences to the loved ones of those who died, particularly coming at this time of year. I also wish for a swift recovery for the individual injured in this incident. The thoughts of everyone in the local area will be with him as he hopefully recovers quickly.

“The death of someone at Christmas is hard to process, especially in such tragic circumstances. I would urge anyone with information on this to pass it to police immediately.”
