Local Councillor Nial Ring said the place where the accident happened is not regarded as an accident blackspot.

“Obviously that particular intersection has seen some tragedies in the past in terms of a shooting, and there has been some accidents in the area, but it’s not a notorious blackspot or anything like that.
