Armagh: Four people killed in single-vehicle crash, police say

Four people have died in a single-vehicle crash in Armagh, Northern Ireland, police have said.

The crash, involving a grey Volkswagen Golf, happened on Ballynahonemore Road at around 2.10am this morning.

The driver and three passengers - who have not yet been identified - were declared dead at the scene.

District Commander Superintendent Paul McGrattan said: "This is an unspeakable tragedy for the families involved, and for the wider community, who will understandably struggle to comprehend such loss of life.

"A thorough and sensitive investigation is now under way, and anyone with information that could assist us is asked to get in touch with the collision investigation unit."

He added: "Police remain at the scene at present and the Ballynahonemore Road will be closed for most of the day.

"The thoughts of the entire police service are with the families, friends and loved ones of those who have lost their lives."

DUP leader Sir Jeffrey Donaldson described the crash as "devastating" in a post on X.

"Tragic news coming from Armagh," he said.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the four deceased in this devastating incident."
