A woman was taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda, with serious injuries following a collision involving two cars and two lorries close to Woodtown Cross on the N52 this morning.

The road traffic accident occurred around 8.20am and the female driver of a Peugeot car was rushed by ambulance to hospital where she underwent emergency surgery. It is understood she is in a critical but stable condition.

The female driver of the other car, a Honda, had to be cut from the vehicle, by members of Nobber Fire Service who attended the scene. She was also taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital with a suspected leg injury. It is understood the two lorry drivers were not injured.

It is understood that the Peugeot and one of the lorries were travelling from the Ardee direction towards the Kells direction. The other car and the lorry were travelling in the opposite direction. The accident occurred around 200 yards south of Donoghue’s Pub on the N52.

The section of road remains closed and diversions are in place. It is expected that the road will reopen later this evening.

Navan Gardai are investigating the collision and are appealing for anyone who witnessed the accident to contact Navan Garda Station on (046) 907 9930.
