Power outage follows Slane accident

A number of houses in the Slane area are still without power following an accident north of the village this morning which resulted in damage to an ESB pole.
Two people suffered minor injuries in the collision near Smyth’s Filling Station, which involved a truck and a car.
The N2 Slane - Ardee Road was closed for several hours this morning, but re-opened around lunchtime.

Cllr Wayne Harding described the accident as the closest thing to a complete catastrophe that the village has ever witnessed. He pointed out that an ESB pole fell on the truck and they were in close proximity to a diesel tank. 

"It is further evidence that the N2 should be taken out of Slane village once and for all. The very fact that the road runs through the village is akin to playing Russian roulette with peoples lives.

"As ever I have nothing but the height of admiration for the emergency response personnel who came upon the scene and put a buffer zone around the area that lasted throughout the morning," he said.
