Gardai have reopened a section of the main Sligo to Donegal road (N15) where a woman was seriously injured in a three-vehicle collision on Monday evening. 

Emergency services rushed to the scene at Moneygold, Grange where a car, a van and a lorry had been involved in an incident at approximately 3.45pm.

It is understood that the lorry, which was carrying a load of milk, had swerved to avoid colliding with two other vehicles which had already been involved in a collision, when it caught fire after hitting a wall.

The woman who was the driver of a car was rushed to Sligo University Hospital where she remains in a critical condition.

There were no other injuries reported.

The road was closed and traffic diversions put place as Sligo City Firefighters personnel brought the fire under control.

Gardaí remained at the scene last night as investigations continued.

The road has since reopened this morning and gardaí are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

“Any road users who may have camera footage (including dash-cam) and were travelling on the N15 at Grange between 3:30pm and 4pm are asked to make this footage available to gardaí," they said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Sligo Garda Station on 071 9157000, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111, or any Garda Station.
