Man receives serious injuries in crash on N3

A man received serious injuries in a crash on the N3 yesterday evening.

A car and a lorry were involved in the incident between Butlersbridge and Belturbet at around 5 o’clock.

The N3 was closed for a time to allow emergency services carry out their work and to remove the vehicles from the scene.

Gardaí, paramedics and the fire service responded.

The driver of the car suffered what have been descried as “serious leg injuries” and he’s believed to be receiving treatment in Cavan General Hospital.

The road reopened last night.
