“This was an horrific scene for all involved with a number of people injured, unfortunately there was nothing we could do for two of the patients,” she said.

“Thank you to the off duty paramedic who witnessed this shocking accident and didn’t hesitate to rush and treat the patients before we arrived on scene.

“This is a reminder to the public about how dangerous the roads can be, especially when travelling in these wet weather conditions.”

An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the crash is underway.
