Man killed in horror Belfast M2 crash – car ‘drove wrong way’ up motorway

It’s thought a car being driven the wrong way up the M2 in Northern Ireland was the cause of Sunday’s horror crash in which a man was killed.

On Sunday evening the M2, M3 and M5 remained closed to traffic as emergency services worked at the scene. There was widespread disruption across the city with the police advising against all but essential travel.

Witnesses described the scene of the crash as “horrific”. Scores of firefighters and medics attended the scene as well as the Air Ambulance.

“I was right behind this accident today with my young son in the car,” said one witness.

“It is the worst accident I’ve ever witnessed I really hope that the people involved are okay though from what I seen I’m unsure. I hope their family members and friends will be okay.”

Another added: “I was less than a minute behind the crash. Absolutely horrific scene. Heartbreaking.”
