Pedestrian killed in Omagh collision is named

A 69 year-old pedestrian has been killed following a road traffic collision in Omagh earlier.

Sean Reid died after the one-vehicle collision which happened on the Great Northern Road close to Gortrush Industrial Estate at around 11.20 this morning.

The Air Ambulance was called to the scene which was also attended by personnel from the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service and the PSNI.


The PSNI has said that one person is currently assisting them with their enquiries.

“I would appeal to anyone who saw what happened, or anyone who has dashcam or helmet footage and was travelling on the road today around the time of the collision and observed the car prior to or at the time of the collision to contact us on 101 quoting reference number 430 of 4/9/18,” said Inspector Rowland.

Mr Reid is the third person to be killed on the A5 within 24 hours. On Monday afternoon, an elderly couple aged in their 70s died when their car was in a collision with a lorry on the Doogary Road.

In the early hours of Monday morning, mother of three, Joanne Treacy, died on the M1 motorway close to Drogheda as she was travelling home from the All-Ireland Final between Tyrone and Dublin in Croke Park.
