Four people have died following a serious traffic collision in Wexford

The cause of the crash is not yet known but gardaí say road conditions were good at the time

Steven Alexander, his brother Doug Jnr and his parents Doug and Lily were all killed in the collision with a truck at Begerin Hill - about four kilometres east of New Ross - last night.

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

Drivers in the vicinity have been warned to avoid the area.

The other two casualties died before they could be transferred to University Hospital Waterford.

Gardaí in New Ross, Co Wexford are investigating a fatal road traffic collision that occurred at approximately 6.30pm on the 4th December 2017.

The scene has been sealed off for Gardaí to conduct an investigation into the collision. It then made a sharp turn right, as if to make a U-turn back towards New Ross.


Why the driver of the vehicle made this manoeuvre is unknown.

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. I am so blessed that to be a part of his life.

She posted it alongside a poem which read: "Although you can't be here with me, we're truly not apart, until the final breath I take, you'll be living in my heart".

Steve Alexander had two daughters, aged 11 and 10.

Mr Alexander's colleagues in the Bolingbrook Police Department described him as a decorated officer who taught self-defence classes to women and girls.

A statement from Bolingbrook Police Department in IL said father-of-two Steven (49) had served with the force for 17 years.
