A Ballinderry resident is calling on road safety measures to be introduced on the Haddockstown Road after a car crashed into his garden in the early hours of Friday morning.

Robbie Haire was awoken by a large bang and went out to investigate finding bits of debris in his garden and a vehicle had crashed into one of his garden pillars.

He told the Ulster Star that this collision was the latest in a series of incidents that have occurred on the road.

He said: “The most recent was during the early hours of Friday morning when a car crashed into a pillar, the sound was like a bomb going off.

“I went out and there was debris absolutely everywhere, a car hit a pillar and it landed in the garden. We have children who play in this garden and I don’t want to think of what could happen if they are in the garden at the time of an accident.

“There has been several bad collisions that have occurred on this road, some of them very serious and it is only a matter of time before there is a fatality.”
