Report: Man from Orange killed in Northern Ireland crash
A 31-year-old man from Orange, Conn. was killed in a motor-vehicle accident in Northern Ireland last week.
The Belfast Telegraph reports that Michael Munro was killed a two-vehicle crash last Tuesday in Antrim in County Armoy.
According to the Belfast Telegraph, Munroe and his wife were visiting Northern Ireland on their honeymoon.
A woman also in her 30s, was also injured, but later released from a hospital on Wednesday.
The BBC reported that Gracehill Road remained closed while police investigated the crash.
The accident happened on Gracehill Road near The Dark Hedges - a tree-lined road made that appears in HBO’s “Game Of Thrones” television series. The twisted beech trees, planted in the 17th century represents the King’s Road in the series.
Dark Hedges, popular destination for tourists, is one of the most photographed natural places in Northern Island.
Darryl Wilson, a local councillor, posted on Facebook, “Deeply saddened to learn that one person has died following a serious two vehicle collision on the Gracehill Road near Armoy this evening. This stretch of road has been an accident black spot over recent years with increased traffic due to local tourist attractions. My thoughts and prayers go out to all impacted by this awful tragedy.”
