A494 in Queensferry fully reopened following fatal crash

North Wales Police have said all carriageways on the A494 through Queensferry are back open following a fatal crash this afternoon.

Two people sadly died following a two-vehicle collision on the eastbound side of the main trunk road through Deeside.
Emergency services were called to the crash just before 2.30pm this afternoon following reports a car had hit a tree just off the A494 opposite the Plough pub.

Chief Inspector Simon Barrasford, North Wales Police said:

 “Sadly this is now being investigated as a fatal road traffic collision.
 
“Traffic is being diverted and diversionary routes are reported to be extremely busy therefore motorists are being strongly advised to avoid the area, or if necessary to allow plenty of time for their journey.”

An area around the front of the pub car park and to the trees which meet up with the A494 was been taped off by police while an investigation into the crash got underway.

The A494 was closed eastbound from Ewloe for a period of time as emergency services dealt with the crash.

A Welsh Ambulance spokesman has said;

“We were called at about 2.20pm this afternoon to reports a car had hit a tree on Aston Road, Queensferry.
Two crews in emergency ambulances and a paramedic in a rapid response vehicle are currently at the scene.”
