A traffic accident has taken place tonight Sunday January 7 in Mountmellick. 

The accident is between two cars, on Davitt Road in the about 8.30pm. 

An elderly lady who lives near the scene was driving one of the cars and was attended by an ambulance crew on site.  .

A Garda on the scene confirmed that after the cars collided, one hit the pillar at the entrance to Brock View housing estate.

The pillar is smashed and the adjacent wall is cracked. 

"They are all locals, there is just material damage, everyone is ok thank God," the Garda told the Leinster Express.
