Alliance Armagh representative Jackie Coade has expressed her condolences following the death of a nine-year-old girl in a car crash there.
The Hamiltonsbawn Road has been closed between Ratarnet Road and Lenalea Road following the crash this morning.
“I am shocked and deeply saddened by this tragedy, and my deepest condolences go out to the family and loved ones of this poor girl,” said Ms Coade.
“I can only imagine the pain the family are experiencing at this time. Everyone in the community will be shocked by this news, particularly given it is such a young girl that has passed away following the crash. I hope the driver and any other passengers in the car have a swift recovery as well.
