Female Pedestrian Involved In Thurles Accident.

Emergency services were called to the scene of an accident on Liberty Square, Thurles (North West) less than one hour ago. (2.45pm, 17th May).

Gardaí, the Ambulance service and two Units of Thurles Fire Brigade attended at the scene.

It is understood that an elderly female pedestrian may have slipped on the edge of a footpath, crossing the entrance to O’Donovan Rossa Street on Liberty Square, falling in front of an articulated truck.

Onlookers state that the truck driver appeared to have been able to stop his vehicle in time, thus avoiding a more serious incident.

Nevertheless, while the victim’s condition was considered not to be life threatening, she was removed, by ambulance personnel to South Tipperary Hospital, for further examination and monitoring.

Time is now, to once again raise the question of the Thurles Ring Road; same promised some 16 years ago, and divert articulated trucks from this heavily pedestrianised area of Thurles.
