Couple, two sons travelling to funeral killed in Wexford crash

Fatal collision in Wexford claimed the lives of four people last night

THE partner of one of the Wexford horror auto crash victims said she felt "blessed" to share a part of her life with him in a heartbreaking final tribute.

The road is closed to facilitate a Forensic Collision examination and will remain closed until at least lunchtime today. The cab of the truck turned sideways in the impact and jack-knifed, and was buried into the side of its own trailer.

Further down the road the spire of the Church of St Mary in Cushinstown can be seen.

The four who died had travelled from the United States to attend the funeral of Winnie Keevey (nee Ryan) originally from Patrickswell.

It is believed the woman who was killed in the crash was a relative of Winnie's.

Award-winning policeman Steve Alexander, 49, died in the same vehicle as mum Lily and his dad Doug, both 75, and his brother Doug Jr, 52 when they collided with a lorry after 6.30pm yesterday on the N25 outside New Ross. But all four were pronounced dead at the scene, and their bodies were later removed by ambulance to University Hospital Waterford in Ardkeen for postmortems.

Driving conditions were described as reasonable at the time though visibility was somewhat restricted by mist and drizzle.

The driver of the lorry, a man in his forties, and a man in his thirties who was in the lorry at the time were uninjured by the crash but were treated for shock.
